I don't dare chime in about full paths versus short paths, but I'd
like to point out that many ports already have tooling in place to
emulate Mac style framework includes for WebKit2.

For instance, #include <WebCore/Page.h> works via a script that scans
source files and creates (hard, I believe) links in a single
directory. This script is surely easily adaptable to use on a
project-wide basis. So, if we decide that a shorter search path is a
win, it doesn't necessarily mean full paths.
