[webkit-dev] WebKit+SVG ready for mainline

I have some good news:   SVG is ready to be rolled into the main  
WebKit development builds.

My proposal is to do so next week.  This will affect all WebKit  
developers, as you will soon be pulling extra source code from CVS,  
and building a slighting larger set of sources (by default).

I'm writing this email to propose my plan of action, and solicit  
feedback and answer any concerns you might have.

My plan of action, in brief:

1.  This early next week I plan to move the ksvg2 and kcanvas  
directories, as well as the SVGLayout tests out of SVGSupport and  
into the main WebCore and LayoutTests modules (this mean's everyone  
will check out more code).
2.  Over the course of next week discuss with several other Safari  
engineers the "tie-in" points which SVG has to the rest of WebKit,  
and re-verify the sanity of said tie-ins. :)
3.  Finally, by next weekend, "flip the switch" and make WebKit+SVG  
the default build target for WebCore.

If you have any questions, comments, concerns, please drop me a line.
