Are there implementations of the IDB*Sync APIs for Workers?

Chromium has not yet implemented this rather large part of the spec, and
last I checked (admittedly, some time ago) no-one else had either. This may
have changed. If not, I'm worried there may be non-minor issues lurking
there that will only be identified during implementation. (I'm a fan of the
IETF's "two genetically distinct implementations" guidance for non-trivial
specs.)
