BTW, I added Webkitsdk-dev to this email since I think that's the  
more appropriate place to discuss this. I'm leaving Webkit-dev@ on  
here too since I don't know who the original poster was. Replies  
should  probably remove the webkit-dev@ email address.

One other thought too. My understanding is that iPhone currently  
lacks complete support for 509certificates and the like. Once support  
for that exists (and I'm just assuming it will some day)  that would  
be the other way to uniquely identify a phone that would not involve  
invading the device user's privacy (since its based on shared trust).

Take care,
