> Instead of adding new API (though perhaps we still want to), would it make sense to just query soup for an installed "about:" handler while handling a request. If the handler is installed then remove it from the empty document schemas.

That's indeed possible. I went for the new API approach because all the other ports offer that API, so I thought it'd be sensible to have it also in WebKitGtk+.

I didn't check that but Dan commented once that they just don't issue the request to webkit and handle it all at browser's level.
