I believe the GTK+ based WebKit already has accelerated composition in
place, based on OpenGL.  The WinCairo port does not currently support
accelerated composition, though I've been working on this off-and-on
for some time.

The main holdup is decent compositing support. We could take advantage
of the compositing routines built into Vista/Windows7 and beyond, but
our current restriction to Visual Studio 2005 and the related
libraries means these features are not available.
