    Congratulations on your unveiling! I'm interested to hear about  
the changes to you made to get WebKit working on your platform(s), and  
I'm very glad that you're going to be sending patches back to the  
WebKit project (perhaps eventually your work can even happen in the  
main WebKit Subversion repository). Please keep us updated!
