Hi WebKittens.

I just saw apng support landed on webkit main stream. [1] (even it works 
for gtk port only now)
So I suddenly wonder if webkit community is getting interested in 
bringing other modern image formats like webp or jpeg-xr into webkit.
If so, I can lend my hands for it.

For webp support, as you know, we can reuse blink's codebase. [2]
For jpeg-xr supprot, I have a rough sketch for it [3] (it might be 
outdated or not fit tot of webkit though, bringing it to webkit is just 
a piece of cake. ;))

My intention is not to argue which format is better, just to ask 
community's thoughts, preferences  or like that.
