[webkit-dev] XHR responseArrayBuffer attribute: possible implementation

passing "undefined" as the 4th and 5th arguments seems pretty clunky to me.
 Since, we already have an "asBlob" attribute, then "asArrayBuffer" like
Darin suggests seems like it might be better.  However, then we can get into
cases where both "asBlob" and "asArrayBuffer" are set, and this problem
would get even worse as new types are added.  So, an attribute called
"responseType" might be a good solution.  This would be instead of passing
it as an argument to open(), and instead of having an "asBlob" attribute.
 This approach seems the cleanest to me, and I'll propose it to the
appropriate standards group.
