It won't work.  Last time I checked the code, I don't remember any 
references to threads at all (I looked, but that was something like a 
year ago, anything could have changed.)  I might be mistaken.

First job is to learn the compile, which is a bit complex.  Then I'll 
know more when I get further into this.  I just haven't had a chance to 
go through it all, yet.

Right now I'm using the wincario port from Brent, so until I compile 
myself, there won't be much movement.  Regardless, it'll take actual 
webkit commit members to change any of this, I can only suggest and 
there might be some important reason why it's this way.
