The only dependency these scripts have is VSCUtils.pm, which contains common routines used by (almost) all the scripts.  If these scripts are used elsewhere, VCSUtils.pm is the only additional file that needs to be copied with them.  (VCSUtils.pm itself doesn't depend on anything else in WebKit as of r46669.)

The only "non-svn" functionality they have now is that svn-apply is able to apply patches to either an svn or a git repository.  (The other two scripts are still svn-only.)

I'm not sure how this makes them WebKit-specific?
