Thanks for the reply Chris. Could you at least eliminate the modality of the
setting and make it a WebSetting/WebPreference? We (Nuanti) are willing to
support development of this important accessibility feature as part of the
accessibility work in WebKit but I'm not comfortable reviewing changes that
modify your globally exported functions since you may be using them internally
in Apple products, and I don't want to develop the feature separately since
it's just a logical improvement of the feature you already added which can be
shared across all WebKit ports and platforms.
