Yes.  The idea is to implement LayoutTestController in terms of the WebKit
API and a (hopefully simple) delegate.  Currently LayoutTestController
knows too much about DumpRenderTree.  That will let us share the
implementation of LayoutTestController and avoid having to maintain yet
another copy.

Upstreaming the chromium-android port is at the top of my priority list,
but I should be able to help out with this work as well.  Should we talk
off-list about how to approach this work?
