Hi there,
I'm making enhancements to EWebLauncher & the ewk backend
on a low end mips box.
A colleague of mine is disappointed that the screen
goes blank for several seconds before displaying
more complex pages like bbc news.#

What we would like to be able to do is leave the old
page on the screen until there is some text or graphics
on the new page to be displayed.

We are not using WebKit2.
WebCore::FrameView::layout getting called only
invalidates stuff on the screen & doesn't gaurantee
that WebCore::FrameView::paintContents
has anything to draw other than blank the screen
in the next redraw session
