Do you mean autocomplete or autofill?  The article that you link to appears to
conflate the two.  Autofill is when the browser attempts to recognize a form
and auto-populate it, either automatically when the page loads or when the user
triggers it.  This may use data from the user's address book, saved usernames /
passwords, or previous forms.  Autocomplete is typically triggered when typing
into a form field.  The browser searches the partial input and offers to expand
it to a previously entered form field value or other saved data.

What do you mean by "handle [it] inside WebKit"?  Many WebKit-using
applications have no desire for autocomplete or autofill.  Those applications
that do want it may want quite different behavior.
