Based on the feedback sent to this list a few weeks ago, I've changed 
postMessage() back to what it was originally. Unfortunately this means the 
feedback that was sent after the initial implementation experience will 
not be taken into account. I made this change because implementations are 
now unable to change due to existing sites using these features.

Specifically, this means the magic "/" string is no longer supported, and 
paths are ignored rather than throwing an exception.

Things that are impossible just take longer.   `._.-(,_..'--(,_..'`-.;.'
