This project appears to be dead for over a year now. It seems to have at  
least intention to support Gecko, but I couldn't get it to work properly  
in Firefox.

I've ran into similar problem as the original poster. For inputs, buttons  
and repetition there's an easy solution:

if (input.type != 'uri') alert('no native WF2!');

but it's a stretch to assume that support of certain input type means  
support for all of WF2, so I'm curious how can one detect support for  
other functionality.
