> FileEntry.toURL should return a url which can be accessed by the application. It currently
just prepends "{{file:///}}" to the pathname. THe resulting path cannot be read by the application
(say, in a script or img tag) if the application is hosted at a custom scheme.
> Mobile Chrome Apps, hosted at {{chrome-extension://<app-id>/}}, can't use files
they have cached on the local filesystem because of this.
> I'd like to change toURL to return something that can be read by any application. http://www.w3.org/TR/file-system-api/#widl-Entry-toURL-DOMString
suggests using {{filesystem:///<identifier>}}, which is consistent with Chrome's behaviour.
> For older versions of Android, we may have to use content:// urls instead, but I'll investigate
that first, to see if it can be consistent.
