Sure, I just somehow forget about them after rebasing the patch against the last changes. Regarding comment #6 I just somehow followed the current behaviour of WebCore when designing the API. Apart from that having an "allow" without a "disable" is like a "set" without a "get" :). And about comment #8 you mentioned that it was not related so I didn't take a closer look at it.

Sure I think I took it accidentally from the mac port, but anyway, I think that having a single signal is more than enough for the moment, we could think about adding more if needed in the future.

Yeah well, at the same time the IconDatabase method is called removeAllIcons, I guess that's why I chose that name but if you think it's clearer I can change it

Should be wrapped actually, but since none of our code is I guess I can remove it.

Fair enough, looks sensible to me.

I think it's better to keep it just to state it very clearly that you have to follow the right steps to get it working.

Basically because I wanted to have just 1 signal that could be used both from the IconDatabaseClient and the FrameLoaderClient. I think it's better to keep the icon database away from any UI-like element like the frames. If you want to listen to a change in a favicon for a specific webview you can still use the icon-loaded signal.

> I think this should be squashed in one change OR do the whole signal change in one patch.

Sure, I just split them for reviewing purpouses to state clearly that replacing the other signal is not a requirement for the main patch

Good catch!. Thx for the review Christian!!!
