I'm not sure I understand what you mean here -- these routines most definitely
are used by clients like WinLauncher.

To not follow the existing WebKit.dll API implies the creation of a whole
parallel API structure for clients that happen to be using the non-CG version
of WebKit.dll.  I desperately want to avoid this!

Now, if you are suggesting that header files that make use of CoreGraphics
types be duplicated I could probably live with that, but I don't really want to
have to duplicate the various implementation files that make use of the graphic
primitives declared in these headers.

I'm not sure which you are suggesting:  (a) the 'duplicate everything'
approach, or (b) 'duplicate just some headers'.
