Since you're here, I'm curious about the motivation for a few of the Gears
features. In particular, what's the use case for "remove", "rename" and
"copy"  in ResourceStore? Also, what motivates the provision of multiple
named stores with independent enable/disable control? What about opening
stores --- is that some sort of approximation to "logging in"? What does it
actually do, given that "the URLs contained in a store are eligible for
local serving without requiring the application to open the store"? When are
stores closed?

Thanks!!

Rob
