Hello WebKittens,

just a heads-up to say that Ojan, Tony and myself will start
implementing CSS Grid Layout [1] starting next week. Don't expect too
many updates at the beginning as we migrate from our current tasks to
this new feature.

CSS Grid Layout is a fairly new standard already implemented by
Microsoft in IE. The standard defines a grid on which to place
elements, not unlike tables but without the existing content structure
found in tables. If you are interested, the specification is pretty
small and explains in details the concepts.

Our plan is to add the new feature under the CSS_GRID_LAYOUT flag
during the implementation. The master bug for the feature is available
here [2] if you want to follow the implementation.

Comments and suggestions are welcome!
