Yes, there are other peers interested in such support, including SDL,
FrameBuffer and DirectFB.

However we're focused on getting the patches merged into SVN first.
Any reviewer attention can help, we're almost there, just some files
pending. They are:

Pending Review:
https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=35915 Add FrameLoaderClientEfl.{cpp,h}
https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=35918 Add EditorClientEfl.{cpp,h}
https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=35932 Add ewk_view.{cpp,h}

Reviewed "r-", but the answers were replied however no further review:
https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=36317 Add EFL-specific code to Widget.h

Needs GTK+ people to check it, as it will shared the same autotools system:
https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=36761 Modify the autotools build system

Simple, just need to decide where the file should go to:
https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=36405 Move
AccessibilityObjectEfl.cpp from page to accessibility

We want to get these patches in first, as they are the base for
further work. For instance, we have a huuuuuuuge number of patches to
expose various APIs that were missing, like frame loader policy,
delegates for ContextMenu, PopupMenu and so on.
