We need to support applications that load custom resources into WebView.
Evolution, tnymail, Yelp, Monodoc are the apps that come to mind.

Something like WebDataSource, or perhaps the ability to register URL protocol
handlers, or both. GIO could be useful for stream classes, perhaps as a
counterpart to NSData in the Mac API.

The Mac Obj-C code is quite tangly and looks like parts are deprecated. We
don't necessarily want to copy everything there.

(Bug #15843 is a request from application authors that we provide additional
metadata to the loader application, such as image scale which might be worth
keeping in mind when designing a stream-based loader API.)
