I see.  This make sense.

I'm not sure I understand what you mean in your comments -- these
routines are most definitely used by clients like WinLauncher.

As I wrote in my bug update:  "To not follow the existing WebKit.dll
API implies the creation of a whole parallel API structure for clients
that happen to be using the non-CG version
of WebKit.dll.  I desperately want to avoid this!"

Just to clarify:  Are you simply suggesting that a separate set of
header files be used for the API (one set for CoreGraphics users,
another set for Cairo users), while the internals of the WebKit.dll
makes use of the internal (platform-agnostic) WebCore/GraphicsContext
