Details

GeckoEmbed is an XCode project that builds a simple browser shell that embeds Gecko. Building iOS apps is kind of a pain, so this provides a simple way to get Gecko onto a device.

I'm planning on landing this without review as NPOTB, I'm just filing this to have a place to note it.
I also added a patch to make --enable-application=embedding/ios work. I was previously building xulrunner, but someone broke that build and I didn't feel like fixing it. embedding/ios just builds toolkit so you get libxul etc but no real app. If we sort out a real embedding API we could make it build that library instead.
