I also don’t think building with accelerated compositing means that it has to be enabled at all; WebKitGTK+ on Windows could probably just have a stub implementation of the relevant GraphicsLayer classes.

Great! I’d be happy to review any patches to do this.

Since we don’t have any WebKitGTK+/Windows buildbots or EWS bots, I think Andrei should go ahead and remove the flag and then the GTK+ maintainers can fix WebKitGTK+ for Windows. Does that sound like a reasonable approach?
