I was just concerned that some people who are used to checkout -> build would
not like the process to become checkout -> generate projects -> build. (e.g. if
we ever moved the VC2005 projects over to using this system) The other scripts
to create generated files are run automatically via the project files, but
obviously we can't do that for the generation of the project files themselves,
which means we add a manual step which would have to be run after each update.
But at the same time, I see the logic for not keeping generated files in SVN,
so I'm open to doing it either way.

If you want, I can go ahead and remove those generated files from the patch.

The main issue is that several of those Bakefiles are shared between WebCore
ports, and presets.bkl is shared between JavaScriptCore and WebCore, so coming
up with 'appropriate' placement of shared items seemed more involved than just
having one directory for all the Bakefiles. Of course, that could just be my
organization style. :-) Did you want me to move the files into various
directories? If so, do you have any suggestions as to where would be a good
location for the presets.bkl and readme.txt files?
