Improvements to the geolocation feature have stalled out because we
don't have a way to test these patches.  It seems the existing
geolocation feature has been implemented without testing.  (Boo!)

Testing geolocation seems different than testing other WebKit features
because geolocation lives in WebCore/platform.  One approach is to
create a fake (or mock) geolocation service that DRT can control.
This has been tried a couple of times:


I couldn't find find any precedent for testing this kind of feature
before, so I wanted to run this by the list to see if anyone has
strong opinions about the right way to test geolocation.
