Surely you'll want the GObject API for programming in your GObject-based
toolkit. Otherwise you're effectively using a different widget and kill
your portability.

So surely the solution is WebKit-GTK+ on top of a system WebCore. I
guess what would be attractive is to take the other existing system
components used by WebKit on MacOSX and use those where possible too.
