Access files created using FileSystem API in another App #271
I found that in node-webkit you can't access files created by FileSystem API in another application. If you do want to access, you have to set the "name" field in package.json to the same as the name of the application whose "FileSystem" you are trying to access, which seems reasonable. But as node-webkit doesn't restrict applications to access each other's files if we are using "--allow-file-access-from-files", why should we restrict "FileSystem" access only? So I suggest we remove this restriction, using the same behavior of Chrome, which restricts only cross-origin filesystem access.

It will not be worse than two chrome instances access the same FileSystem at the same time

One thing is that if 2 nw applications are trying to access FileSystem in the same time, there should be problem...
