[webkit-dev] Getting at Settings object from WorkerContext

I'm trying to add a setting to enable/disable WebSockets at runtime (so that the browser can make websockets available as a user preference, for instance).  It's easy to add a flag to Settings, and check it from JSDOMWindowCustom::webSocket to return undefined for the websocket object when it's disabled.  But you can also get a websocket object from a worker, with JSWorkerContext::webSocket.  And since there's no frame or page associated here, there's no way to get a Settings object.

Is it possible to get a Settings object from a WorkerContext?

If not, I think I need to make the setting a static on the Settings object.  There's precedent for this in setMinDOMTimerInterval and setShouldUseHighResolutionTimer, but it doesn't feel right for a high-level feature like this.
