That could be done, yes.

It's difficult to see a way to expose the QNetworkAccessManager in the public API the same way that it is with WebKit1.

The only way I can see to achieve what I need (actually our current 
implementation can do even more, like executing javascript code to 
prefill form fields and press the submit button) is to make WebProcess a 
simple tiny binary and move all its functionality into a library (maybe 
having an API as close as possible to WebKit1); then one could make 
one's own WebProcess implementation, if the WebView had an API which 
allowed selecting the WebProcess binary to execute.

Do you think that the above might make sense, or am I missing some 
important details?
