Add option to remove "Contributors" and "Used by" widgets from repository home page

Now that these profile and repository links are featured so prominently in the sidebar, the “Contributors” and “Used by” widgets could be abused to get backlinks from other projects. Maintainers may also prefer to not link to certain profiles and dependent projects from repository home pages, or be associated with them in such a visible way.

Please add an option to hide these widgets from the project home page.
