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

Thanks Gustavo!

I applied the patch and after some additional code changes in
GtkLauncher it works. Actually pretty well!! :) I had a much less
sophisticated version in my tree.
One thing missing right now is window.close() from what I can see. Did
you leave that out intentionally? I guess we need a similar signal in
ChromeClient::closeWindowSoon() for that, e.g. "close-web-view".

I think mostly because code has not been written or has not been
reviewed/commited yet. I think what you are trying to do will probably
be helped by these:
