I like this idea good bit. Are there still sites that fail with our current
setup? I'm working on scrollbars now, so maybe I'm in a good place
to fix any remaining bugs.

If we do decide (because of some unfixable bugs or whatever) that we
must expose a different version of the WebView that draws its own
scrollbars, would it make sense to simply implement pan scrolling
to cover the usecase of MokoFingerScroll? I believe that there is already
support for pan scrolling in WebCore, so it's probably just a matter of
connecting the pre-existing dots. That way this could be used on
platforms outside of Moko as well.
