I've just thrown together a script to build + upload WebKit.  With  
the wonders of launchd, it should execute daily at 1600 NZST (0400  
UTC).  It uploads a disk image containing the built frameworks + a  
stub application to <http://bdash.net.nz/files/webkit/nightly/Latest- 
WebKit-CVS.dmg>.  Previous versions will be available in the <http:// 
bdash.net.nz/files/webkit/nightly/> directory.

Hope this helps,
