OK. So the only real pitfall I can see to me testing the version  
number to see if my workaround is redundant is that Apple could  
release one or more minor updates to WebKit that actually have higher  
version numbers than 420 (since 418 is the current release) and which  
don't include the fix, or is that not likely (i.e they would end up  
as 418.1, 418.2 etc).

I realize you can't talk about future versions etc, but any further  
insight would be appreciated.
