[whatwg] database full error (was: Re: executeSql API issynchronous)

As long as the database is readable, I can query all data out of it and
upload them to a backup server via HTTP.  While this need not be the most
efficient and secure way to go, there are no software obstacles against.
Better methods may be invented.
Best regards,
Chris

This is true in the general case, but will you be able to accomplish
this using JavaScript APIs which are part of the Database spec?
