Sounds fine; I'd just call it WEBKIT_SAFARI, and have it be the path  
to Safari.app, including the name "Safari.app".

This doesn't seem so useful to me. This is would be a script that  
sets one environment variable, DYLD_FRAMEWORK_PATH. I think people  
can make their own.

But I could be wrong -- I'd be happy to take a patch with this script  
if many people found it useful.
