I am strongly against integration of GURL behind KURL.  This code is  
simple, and there's no reason to complicate it like this.  Any port  
should be able to use KURL as is and just translate at boundaries  
(like the existing Mac port does).  I don't think there should be any  
major issues with this approach, and the alternative is to place a  
burden on WebKit as far as having to maintain a now needlessly  
complicated KURL class.
