    The development of Iris Browser for Windows CE has been  
suspended, but we still plan to contribute to WebKit as a project and  
this does not preclude working on code specific to a given port.  I  
think there is clearly enough interest in the Windows CE port to keep  
it around, and the impact on the tree is really not that big.  The  
more intrusive changes that were done by Torch Mobile were specific  
to certain classes of features, really.  I see no reason to pull it out.
