Re: GM_getSharedObject

One thing that is missing from "just persisting objects" is the idea
of a background running thread.
GM services would be able to remain active even if no page is using it.

This could be used for interpage communication like Jeremy suggested,
or for batched synchronization with a server and also keeping richer
data structures without having to keep unloading/reloading them.

Cheers,
Julien
