Our current noopener implementation opens the new & disconnected window in the current process. It would be nicer if we could open it in a brand new process when the current one is overloaded, or we haven't reached dom.ipc.processCount yet.

This bug tracks the changes required in order to implement this feature behind a pref.

I think I will want to wait for ehsan's changes to this code from bug 1343728 to land before reworking nsIWindowWatcher to get the APIs I need to implement this.
