[webkit-dev] Javascript window.open handling in GTK

Playing around with the code for a while now I found that, at least in
the GTK implementation, window.open(), close(), etc is not implemented.
Can anyone explain to me why this is not implemented? Maybe because of
security concerns? Wouldn't it be better to have a setting defined that
restricts this feature instead of not implementing it at all?!

Anyway I did my own implementation in ChromeClientGtk.cpp that actually
works ok so far. However in order to make it really nice and proof I
need to get a handle to the parent webview that originally started this
new window. I didn't find a way yet on how to get this information down
there. Can someone give me a pointer on where I can get his information

Main reason actually is that the parent window has to be refreshed when
the child window closes. Also I want to have a safety check in the close
function if the calling instance is the top level webview.
