Hi all,

I've been working on WebKit off and on for a while now but I must admit
that, up to this point, I still don't have a firm grasp of all the layering
in WebKit. What depends on what, and what cannot depend on what? What is
the motivation of each of these individual layers? I understand the need to
have WebKit supported under multiple platforms and with any embedder, and
but I often don't fully understand what constitues a layering violation or

Could someone please summarize or provide a link that explains all this? I
think this would be beneficial to the entire WebKit community!
