That makes sense to me.  Looking through my working copy, there are a
couple of things that aren't obvious to me where they would go in this
structure: WebKitBuild and WebKitLibraries.  Maybe these would become
Build and Libraries as top-level directories?

Removing ForwardingHeaders certainly sounds valuable.  They've tripped
me up on a number of occasions.  :)
