Glad to hear they are planning to contribute the code in the future.  
It will be much easier to provide meaningful help once the code is  
available. Until then, it's hard for us to help you figure out what is  
going wrong in the temporarily private port, and somewhat off-topic to  
ask for help on the list.

I'm not trying to give you a hard time. It's just that this list is  
meant for development discussion of WebKit, as in the public  
svn.webkit.org tree. We get a lot of questions from people who are  
clearly working on various private ports, and it is a distraction from  
the on-topic content. Asking for help in using the API is not entirely  
on-topic either.

If people would like a forum for such discussions, we can consider  
making a webkit-help list where it would be on-topic to ask for WebKit- 
related help, without distracting us from actual development discussion.
