Adobe should bring their changes back into the webkit.org tree, using  
ifdefs as appropriate.

As can anyone else who's interested in making configurations on  
Windows that depend on libraries other than the Apple WebKit support  
libraries. The three pieces from the Apple WebKit support libraries  
are: CoreGraphics for rendering, CFNetwork for networking, and  
SafariTheme for a custom form control look that blends in with Safari.

Also note that Adobe's branch is designed to work inside AIR, so it  
has many other differences from a version of the library that you'd  
use in a web browser -- those also will need appropriate ifdefs.
