Yepp, agreed. Let's switch it over.

The mirror is also pushed to http://gitorious.org/webkit/webkit, which I 
was planning to keep as is for now, so that would mean setting up an 
extra mirroring for the non-author-rewritten history :/ Also, the server 
I run this on has a somewhat uncertain future. With that in mind it's 
probably easier to just push directly from the same import that's pushed 
to git.webkit.org, and make the GitHub mirror an official mirror?
