[webkit-dev] Support FTS3 in WebSQLDatabases

I'd like to ask some of our SQLite gurus at Apple about this.  I recall that they have had (admitedly Apple Internal) concerns about it in the past.

Is there a bugzilla for this that I can follow and update?

FTS3 has been a standard SQLite extension for quite some time and allows web developers to use full text search. The goal is to make it easier for web developers who used Gears for their apps to migrate those apps to HTML5 WebSQLDatabases.
