Removing the automatic colon from newforms' _html_output

The _html_output() method automatically adds a colon at the end of a field's label if the label name does not end with a punctuation symbol. I move to completely remove this behavior and let the programmer choose if he wants a colon or not by specifying it him/herself in his form definition. Django should not make presentation decisions for the user.
Here is the code in question, it's in django/newforms/forms.py on line 132 in r6345
# Only add a colon if the label does not end in punctuation. if label[-1] not in ':?.!': label += ':'
