 yaay!  that worked.  event handling is back.  do a git pull from
http://github.org/lkcl/webkit/16401.master and you'll be able to put
in callbacks on mouse, keyboard, etc. event handling on individual DOM
nodes again.

i've updated the http://lkcl.net/webkit/main.c example if you want to
download that again, i changed it to highlight <a href>s rather than
<object href>s which may make a bit more of a useful example.
