You don't immediately notice any problems, but trust me there are some. We are 
working on a new network stack for Qt, which we will integrate with for 
QtWebKit once it's ready.

This relates to the new networking stuff above as well, as the new stack will 
likely contain some APIs to make cookie management easy.

No, there's no docs available currently and the nsplugin support for QtWebKit 
is something that has to wait until a few other things in QtWebKit are done.
