Support for getUserMedia?

#Opera Mini should provide support for the HTML5 getUserMedia Standard.
##What is getUserMedia?
getUserMedia allows web app developers to allow users to interact with apps through use of their mobile camera or microphone. This can, for instance, allow for alternate reality cross-platform application development. This function, however, is not supported by many mobile browsers (other than Chrome).
##Why should we support it?
One issue with creating great cross-platform web apps is the amount of abstraction present in mobile browsers; if opera takes steps to allow developers better access to the device, they will be able to create better applications.
Thanks for reading this, I hope at least some of you agree with my point.

It is supported in Opera for Android (Opera Mobile). Firefox for Android too, come to think of it. List of supported browsers.
Not an official statement by Opera or anything quotable, but I’d say it is not likely to become available in Opera Mini. It has other features way more relevant for way more users than this.
