           Summary: GTK+ WebKit should allow the application to execute
                    Javascript on it.
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 522+ (nightly)
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: WebKit API
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org
        ReportedBy: seanegan at gmail.com

I'm implementing AdiumX "chat styles" (http://adiumxtras.com) in Pidgin
(http://pidgin.im). These chat styles require the application to call a
javascript function defined by the style.

This patch allows the GTK+ bindings to call arbitrary javascript on the

An alternative is to have webkit_gtk_page_open call the change_location method,
which special cases javascript: uri's and use that method with javascript:
uri's, but this seemed like the better solution to me.

Just to show off a bit, some screenshots of what this allows:
