Yeah, it needs to be in the root dir because wx needs to build WebCore and WebKit together now (meaning they need to share a common root dir), as otherwise we hit problems with export symbol macros and debugging symbols when building WebCore as a convenience library. I have been avoiding putting stuff in the root dir, but it was the only way I found to resolve these issues.
