[webkit-dev] A more detailed source tree overview

Hi all, 

I've been trying to familiarize myself with the WebKit source tree.  I started at https://trac.webkit.org/wiki/HighLevelOverview but it is a bit sparse.  While I was checking out and building the code I decided to do some deeper browsing and document my findings.  The resulting markdown doc is attached.

1. Does this look like something you'd like to see added to the Wiki?  Some of the remarks are assumptions and may be incorrect (I marked ones where I was REALLY guessing with "(?)").  I'll be happy to fix any inaccuracies.

2. I have a trac account but I didn't want to edit the existing High Level Overview page or add a new page without permission.  Is there documentation somewhere for the process of submitting wiki changes (as opposed to committing code patches)?

Also, I think the markdown syntax will need to be tweaked and some links changed to Wiki-relative ones rather than absolute URLs.  I'll be sure to change that once I get some guidance on adding this to the Wiki.

Thanks and Regards,
