Could you specify your goals more precisely? Are you going to
a) develop native application using customized WebKit engine, with your additions implemented via plugin, or
b) develop plugin which would be possible to use in different WebKit-based browsers?
If the answer is (a), portability should not be a concern for you, since you are in control of your environment, but you also don't have to use NPAPI/PPAPI-style plugins, because you can modify engine at your will.
