Re: Structured clone in WebStorage

Have you guys considered what happens when a Blob is present?  I'm very
concerned about that case since WebStorage is a synchronous API.  If storing
a Blob in LocalStorage involves synchronous disk IO, then I'm pretty sure it
is something I would object to implementing.  I don't think there is a
hand-wavy answer about performing a file copy asynchronously in the
background.  What if the file copy fails?
