Hi all,

I've created the branch for feature development in r21341.  For  
contributors without commit access you can check out the branch from <http://svn.webkit.org/repository/webkit/branches/feature-branch/ 
 >.  Contributors with commit access should use <svn+ssh://username@svn.opensource.apple.com/svn/webkit/branches/feature-branch 
 >.  As Maciej noted in his original email, the usual review process  
applies to all changes being landed on this branch.
