Hey Michael!

As far as the specification goes, the two big parts that aren't  
implemented are opportunistic entries, and dynamic entries.

Also, all I/O is currently synchronous which is of course something  
that we'd like to avoid. The relevant code is (as you probably already  
know) in WebCore/loader/appcache, but also elsewhere in the loader,  

The code hasn't received a lot of testing (given that the spec is  
fairly new and in flux). Some regression tests are in LayoutTests/http/ 

Any feedback/comments you have is of course much appreciated!
