[webkit-dev] DRT/WTR should clear the cache at the beginning of each test?

The reality is that this "test coverage" today shows up as flakiness and so
is ignored anyway, meaning we don't actually have useful coverage here.
 Even when flakiness is investigated, the "fix" is to cache-bust using
unique URL params, which just means we "lose" the coverage you describe for
that test, anyway.

Brian notes in the bug that GTK & wk2 GTK+ are done.
I believe that just leaves chromium & mac.
Anyone wanting to step up to do mac, and, I guess, wk2 mac?
