I think it's a good idea, from my POV is just waiting for someone to
propose an API and then move the code to sugar-toolkit. I think it was
Lucian who suggested it would be a full abstraction so there could be
a backend implemented with hulahop/xulrunner and another with webkit.

Not much needed right now, but if you could find some time during this
