How about this for a solution for the localStorage mutex problem:
"the user agent MAY release the storage mutex on *any* API operation
except localStorage itself"
This guarantees that the common case of "several storage operations in
a row with nothing in-between" works, but gives the implementors the
freedom to release the storage mutex wherever else they find they need
I ran this by a few people at the W3C tpac (where I am now) and
everyone I talked to seemed to think this would work.
Let the objections commence.....
