[webkit-dev] Adding ENABLE_QUOTA for unified quota support to WebCore

Hi webkit-dev folks,

I wanted to let you know that I plan to add (and have added some code for)
unified storage quota API to WebKit.
The feature/API is to allow webapps to request or query per-origin storage
quota across multiple storage types (e.g. IndexedDB, SQL DB and FileSystem
API).  The feature/API has not been fully specified yet but has been
discussed on public-webapps and seems to be getting some supports from
browser vendors:

I'd like to move this forward and start experimenting the API in WebKit.
This support will be behind the ENABLE_QUOTA feature define and the exposed
API will be vendor-prefixed as the API is still in its very early stage.
Here's the umbrella bug for the feature:

I plan to add a common interface in the WebCore codebase and then to add
implementation for chromium port first so that the chromium buildbots will
be tracking ENABLE_QUOTA build.  We expect this feature/API to be eventually
fully specified and enabled by all ports.

Looking forward to your comments.
