Are you sure about that?  Admittedly I'm a newbie at figuring out the whole
packaging thing, so I could be mistaken, but it looks like the current bits
in the SVN 1.4 branch have the same WEBKITGTK_API_VERSION and thus want to
install to /usr[/local]/webkit-1.0/*, just like 1.1.x/1.2.x did.  Doesn't
that make them *not* parallel installable?
