I think adopting KHTML (or webcore) inside GNOME could be a very good
strategy for GNOME for two reasons:
 - First, KHTML is a great piece of code. It works well and will be even
better with time as Apple codes on it.
 - Second, it would be a sign that GNOME wishes to cooperate with KDE in
a less unilateral way. I know that GNOME developers are willing to
cooperate with KDE developers but I think that KDE devs feel pissed off
because until now it was always KDE which had to adopt a foreign lib and
not the contrary (well, most of the time). So, if GNOME could adopt a
very KDE lib, I think that could help some KDE devs to understand that
GNOMErs can do some efforts too.

PS: if you don't agree with me, it's not worth starting a flame, there
are enough flames about this topic on Slashdot and OSNews these days...
