Followup on this. All of the functional patches necessary for this are 
now up in various bugs:

* Bug 882858 - reviewed, I'll land tomorrow morning
* Bug 883420 - new nsIPermissionManager API, r?jdm sr?mounir
* Bug 880735 - patch series r?jaws and jschoenick

These patch do not include changes to the functional tests, which I hope 
to finish soon.

I have pushed a full try run on the functional changes, partly for early 
UX testing and feedback, and partly to get some QA on android to make 
sure that I haven't broken their CtP UI, which remains significantly 

Finally I still don't have any feedback on the visuals. When I finish 
the tests, I will plan on making something basic myself so that there is 
at least something we can land and iterate on.
