FYI, the WebKitTools/Scripts/do-webcore-rename script, which was used
to do the WebGL renaming, performs a search-in-replace in all files in
WebCore, WebKit and JavaScriptCore. I think the reason for the skew
was that your files weren't in the tree yet, but any subsequent
renamings done with this script should adjust them automatically.
