Thanks again Konstantin! 

I think my best hope is based on what you
glimpsed while pondering about SVG support on Webkit: compiling Qt
submodules one by one, using the switches I might need and other that
don't - doing so in a extreme fast machine (SSD raid and so on) with
basic automatic functionality tests, could give me a very good result in
a couple of days (using config parsing switches scripts). It would be
awesome to provide a barely minimal and downsized package for mobile
clients (which I'm now focused), as an example. 

One thing I was
thinking: is there any ICU flag that I could disable during compiling
that doesn't affect Webkit behaviours? I'm asking this because after (or
even) webkit's own lib, ICU's the bigger one (~21Mb in Windows -- I'm
still working to get it's release lib on mobile). 

My best regards and
thanks again,

print or qml or quick or sensors are really necessary for webkit to work
