Hi Marcus,

Thank you for taking the time to reply.  It's is extremely helpful to
have some confirmation, rather than working from my own assumptions.
What I don't understand is why there is no official announcement from
Nokia.  They just alienate developers and mess around the open source
community they have gained so much from (through WebKit).  They could
save a lot of people a lot of time if they communicated wtf is going
on.  For me Nokia's approach to s60 WebKit community is just as bad as
Google's approach to the Android community.  Sort it out Nokia.
