#33 Whatever happened to Total Recall?

Okay, so about a year and a half ago, Alphanumerica promised us a wonderful contribution to Moz - a crash recovery module, that would store open windows, and resurrect them, complete with form elements, in the case of a crash.

I understand that people want to say 'We don't want this - we want moz never to crash, so you'd never need this thing', but I'd seriously suggest that if 1.0 is still going to crash (which it surely will), the addition of Total Recall into the codebase should be given *serious* consideration. The project on mozdev seems to suggest that an XPI installer would be relatively easy to produce.

And no, I don't think this is an absurd 'We should have a word-processor included' request, especially given we were promised this functionality, what, a year ago?
