Michael, that is not how WebKit works. You can't remove random WebCore files from one of the port's builds and require that WebCore does not use them. At the moment of forking the code / excluding the files you take full responsibility for keeping your fork green.

Alternatively we could provide a chromium specific impl of InspectorApplicationCacheAgent in a chromium specific .cpp file (but that wasn't our first choice).

I think it is clear that your request is not valid. Instead of investing into the diverged inspector facilities on top of diverged app cache facilities, I would fix the underlying code.

 Joe, I've heard that negotiating common app cache interface has been challenging and chromium ended up in this unpleasant forked state. Do you think you can help us fixing the underlying code and setting right abstractions in WebCore? In return we could invest into / provide decent support for the appcache in the inspector. No one wants to deal with nasty forks. See the alternate ApplicationCacheHost implementation under the WebKit/chromium/src.
