           Summary: postMessage() spec now supports sending arrays of ports
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 528+ (Nightly build)
          Platform: Macintosh
        OS/Version: Mac OS X 10.5
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: WebCore JavaScript
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org
        ReportedBy: atwilson at google.com

Currently, the various flavors of postMessage (DOMWindow.postMessage,
MessagePort.postMessage, Worker.postMessage, etc) take a single optional
MessagePort argument which is passed to the destination via the
MessageEvent.messagePort attribute.

The HTML5 spec has changed to allow passing an array of ports instead, and 
renames MessageEvent.messagePort to MessageEvent.ports. This spec change didn't
seem to generate much feedback one way or the other, so I'm not certain whether
it's going to stick (we're the first platform to support MessagePorts) but
there's no technical reason not to implement it.
