And this way lies madness ;). I love the idea of using webkit as a  
rendering layer, but then you start to have to think about content  
types. Do you do MIME types, and assign different plugins to render  
the content? So if the content of your Item is an HTML MIME type,  
chandler would use the specified plugin to render that type.
This is super flexible, but hard to narrow down, functionaly. And  
Chandler has suffered from some very, perhaps overly, high design  
goals. I hope that the rearch project will be designed to suppprt this  
kind of thing, but I'm not sure they are at the point of having to  
think about this stuff.

But I hope they do!
