Sorry, I should have added a link. I was asking about:


Which mentions:

"... manipulating the DOM model directly through 
the glib/gobject bindings has in one case improved 
performance by roughly an
order of magnitude - 
and that was through a second layer of Python 
bindings to the Glib bindings. 

Many other applications may wish to benefit from 
the power and small
footprint of WebKit ..."

And, yes, you're right about needing the DOM bindings. 

When you say, "you'll have to wait a bit more", I would 
like to take that as an encouraging sign, but I don't have 
any point of reference. Roughly how long is "a bit more", 
in Webkit?

I can get started with the existing Deb downloads, but 
by the time I have to start delivering a cross platform 
version, it will be too late to switch horses.

Thanks again,
Jerry S.
