My tentative plan is to have a new API that sits on top of
http://fetch.spec.whatwg.org/ somehow. (In due course
http://xhr.spec.whatwg.org/ will build almost directly on that too, so
the underlying architecture would be shared across the platform.) E.g.

fetch(Request) that returns a Future<Response>. Where exactly "fetch"
should be and what shortcuts we should provide, etc. is not entirely
clear to me yet.
