My Ideas for GSoC 2015

I'm Zhenbo Li, a college student who participated in GSoC 2014 for
mshtml.dll. Here are some ideas for GSoC 2015.
This interface is to display images . I'm sure that it is necessary
for VPT, and I guess implementing this interface will contribute to
programs like 7zip.
Although IDropTargetHelper is a useful interface, I haven't found a
proper demo(most demos depend on MFC). So I'm writing a simple demo for
this interface, with no MFC or .NET code.
XMLHttpRequest is used heavily in AJAX programming. Wine has
implemented most of it in msxml component, but it's a stub in mshtml.
Most js code doesn't treat wine IE as IE6 or earlier, so they will not
choost ActiveX to work around it(like Firebug Lite)
IHTMLStorage is used widely, including Firebug Lite. A
well-implemented IHTMLStorage interface should support both
sessionStorage and localStorage. I tried to write a hack, but found that
it may be necessary to adjust wine-gecko code to support that(Thank
Jacek). Therefore, implementing sessionStorage can be the first step of
implementing localStorage, and it can be an example for WebIDL binding
for further development.
These are my humble ideas for GSoC 2015, and I'm glad to choose one of
them as my proposal, if they meet the criteria for GSoC. Also, it is my
honor if my ideas make a positive effect on other GSoC students.
Thank you for reading this mail. I'm looking forward to your feedback.
