[webkit-dev] Overhauling the way selection works in WebKit

Hi all,

For your information, I'm going to completely change the way WebKit's
selection works in the next week or two.  The following changes will be
made (not necessarily in the order):

   - FrameSelection.setSelection will *no longer* set focus by default,
   resolving very old webkit.org/b/38696
   - Selection and caret's appearance will be updated *asynchronously*
   - FrameSelection::setSelection will *not* validate its VisibleSelection
   until explicitly asked to do so

Some of these changes will require a large number of editing tests
rebaselines, and I'll follow up on them as I create patches.

- R. Niwa
