[webkit-dev] Complicated Loaders

The sequence of FrameLoader and DocumentLoader functions is indeed  
complicated and overloaded.  This is slowly being improved over time,  
little by little.  And no, there is no documentation at this time.

I'm not sure of the exact motivation for your question, but you did  
end on a very specific note so this might be of use.  The question of  
"how WebKit is invoking the HTTP stack" is much simpler - the  
ResourceRequest, ResourceHandle, and ResourceResponse classes are all  
fairly encapsulated and represent HTTP connections.
