Yes asynchronous makes it annoying. But you can still use it.

When the Inspector opens, read all the preferences from the database into a
Preferences object. Then when a preferences needs to change store the
preference in the database and in the Preferences object. Any clients of the
preferences will read only from the Preferences object, but the values do still

This is basically how localStorage works behind the scenes.

Maybe we could consider a way to tell the Web Inspector's WebKit to use a
special backing database for it's localStorage, so it does not conflict with
other file URLs?
