I object.

I don't want WebCore to get larger and larger as support for every conceivable device is added. WebCore is hopefully not an operating system that has to provide APIs for every peripheral a computer has. Or if it is now, then it needs to be structured a very different way - implementing APIs for everything from MIDI to OpenGL to HTTP to encryption in a monolithic project just doesn't make sense.
