 murrah, hi, thank you: sadly, the implementation of webkit _used_ to
have private pointers available but they were removed and replaced
with hash maps.  now that there are _three_ separate "bindings" -
javascript (JS), objectiveC (ObjC) and now glib (GDOM) i hope that
some alternative mechanism than having one hash map per binding will
be considered.

 i will definitely look at gtkmm because this is quite tricky stuff.
i'm going to need to copy the style of the objc for one part and the
style of the JS bindings for the other.
