[webkit-dev] Reporting exceptions from worker context to users

Hi all,
Currently, unhandled exceptions are sent from worker context over to the
parent page where they are logged to the console. This works fine for
dedicated workers, but not for shared workers which can have multiple active

The immediate solution that springs to mind is to broadcast the exception to
every window associated with a shared worker, and have each window log the
unhandled exception to its console. Is there another option that might be
better (is there the concept of an inspector/console that is not associated
with a specific window, for example)?
