  This has been discussed, but I didn't see a bug (even a WONTFIX one) here for
it, so I figured I'd file it. Basically, at least Gecko and WebKit don't
implement the "title" parameter of history.pushState and history.replaceState
due to complexity issues.

  Here are the relevant Gecko and WebKit bugs:
  https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=585653
  https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=43730

  It will definitely confuse authors for the rest of time to have a parameter
that is documented to do something but in fact does not. (It already confused
us in the Bugzilla Project.)
