Top/Top of Tree. Current state of play in CVS.

This argument makes very little sense. WebKit is not going to be
ported to Windows (which is what I presume you mean). What has been
proposed is having the infrastructure for the GTK integration effort
for WebCore rolled into CVS. How that would affect WebKit's SPI use is
beyond me. (It sucks that it's necessary for WebKit to use SPI, but
it's kind of understandable that WebKit adopts technologies which are
added in new OS releases.)
