IndexedDB: webkitGetDatabaseNames (deprecated)

The API asynchronously returns a list of existing database names in an origin, which seemed sensible enough. The design is flawed, in that the results may be obsolete as soon as they are returned, so it can really only be used for logging, not serious application logic. Not implemented in other browsers. tracks/links to previous discussion on flaws and possible alternatives.
