Has there been a webkit-dev e-mail sent about this? Certain experiments may be against project goals, and it's not immediately clear if this one is desired.

Sending out mail to webkit-dev@ shortly, was already working on it :).

I'm WontFix'ing this bug until a WebKit port wants this functionality (only Chromium ever implemented it).

Feel free to revert <http://trac.webkit.org/changeset/148731> to bring requestAutocomplete() back.

So long and thanks for all the fish!
