it turns out that there already exists a firefox extension which adds
"only" web server functionality to the firefox web browser (and any
other XUL engine).  what POW (plain old web server) doesn't have is
firewall-busting technology built-in - therefore no peer-to-peer

that would appear to leave webkit as the one browser engine which
doesn't have this feature.

looking around, it would appear that implementing extensions to webkit
are expected to utilise objective-c only. [there is a good reason why
mozilla went for COM - it's accessible and easily extensible across a
wide range of free software languages and environments].
