Hi Eric, thanks for the encouragement (and also, to Joost in private 
mail).  I dropped by the channel and indeed found several helpful people.

I spent a few hours today working on Kupu against a WebKit nightly.  I 
sent a status report to the Kupu list:


In summary, I plan to wait until this lands:


Kupu relies very, very heavily on Selection and Range support.  As the 
context changes, the buttons get updated, drop-down lists get new items, 
etc.  I'm eager to look at this more when the patch lands.

Again, thanks for the encouragement.
