we, Adobe, plan to do the following:

a/ merge the latest WebKit top-of-tree with our changes (we're  
waiting for a certain Jesus-device to be released before doing so)

b/ publish our branch as we make available future public beta builds  
of Apollo

b/ submit our changes back to WebKit top-of-tree. This will happen as  
soon as we ship Apollo 1.0.

We have no intention of forking our branch.

Note that we are using Cairo to render on Windows, not Quartz. We are  
not using CoreFoundation either. The availability of both of those  
libraries when Safari shipped were interesting surprises, but we do  
not expect to change our plan at this point.
