I'm glad to hear that. I thought it would be harder (as the last time
with the gnu_inline stuff).

I know you worked on the port, that's why I said you did a really
good job. It's both impressive and esteemed.
I was just speaking for the community, and actually having a great
web browser was the finality of porting WebKit.

As for the patches, I can help you. I know how awful and boring it
can be. But I already have many patches landed on the tree.
The WebCoreSupport code is already in the tree, but none of the
API. It may require some explanations from us (and specially you,
as most of the code is yours).
