[webkit-dev] Question regarding build flags for the features

If we had a single flag for all those (ENABLE_FILE_API ?) then a port would
have to implement all features at once to be able to enable it. It might
be inconvenient. If the code is not shared and those flags can be enabled in
any combination, why not keep them separate?

On a related note, it'd be nice to have a page (on a wiki?) with a list of
those flags with some sort of a status/owner, and possibly some info on what
a port should implement to be able to enable a feature.
