Do you mean the stuff in here (/WebKit/WebCore/inspector)?  Maybe it is,
and if it is, great.  However, I won't be using the standard inspector
panels to display it, so I'd have to do whatever it is doing to extract
the information I need.

Like I said, it may be obvious, but I'm just really starting to get a
feel where certain bits are located in the source tree.  I'm *sure* it's
in there somewhere, but I couldn't find anything obvious in the network
backend, the GTK+ client classes or the path mentioned above that looked
like good candidates.

I did have a quick look through the Apple docs for NSURLResponse before
I sent the message, but from the source, I got the feeling that the
networking layers were generally supplied by the particular
platform/port, and therefore, they wouldn't necessarily expose the same

I'll keep looking though.
