The "Redistributable" WebKit on Windows currently uses the cURL
backend.  I am fully in favor of switching to libSoup for this
platform as well, if it is known to work properly on Windows.

I am a bit concerned that it seems to be heavily tied to the Gnome
platform.  Will I end up having to pull in glib and other Gnome
dependencies if I wish to use it?
