It works on the Mac because when you allocate a WebView using  
[[WebView alloc] init], the NSView implementation of -init will call  
into -initWithFrame:.  If you *don't* call -init, you would need to  
call -initWithFrame: or -initWithFrame:frameName:groupName: on the  
WebView to initialize it before you could make use of it.
