After looking at the patch, I'm not 100% what functionality the signal is meant
to cover. It looks like it is pretty similar to what navigation-policy-decision
or a create-web-view do.

Could you describe exactly what page content and according user action trigger
this? I guess it must at least be anchors with a blank target, but then again,
that's what create-web-view already does? And does it cover anchors with, say,
"_new" or "madeuptargetname"? Does it cover the context menu item "New Window"?

I'm not sure if it's a good idea to introduce several similar signals which all
say "handles new window", application developers will have a hard time
implementing them.
