Yes, I saw your msg on IRC (after you left) :)

I think it is meant as a security feature, maybe one can e.g. redirect
and post it to a server -- however, when the original file is also
loaded from file:// (and in this case, even programmatically set) then
I think it should be allowed.

There's no such API that I know of, but there is the ability to
overload various steps of the page-loading process, so it might be
possible for me to allow some way of redirection to local files.

I tested this, it works in OmniWeb but not Safari nor Firefox when I
redirect to file://, if however I redirect to a custom URL scheme then
it works for Safari. Also, Safari/webview refuses to follow any <a
href="file://..."> or <form action="file://..."> (i.e. also when this
is the output from a TextMate command).
