If you're developing against a frozen version of Webkit, no worries, I  
guess. I've got 1.1.12 patched and working, with a copy of the release  
tarball stored locally. The long term risk will come when Gtk changes  
their interface (which they've been talking about on gtk-devel instead  
of reviewing OSX patches, grr.) and Webkit-gtk-1.1.12 no longer builds  
against it. Of course, given how long it took Gnucash to move to Gtk 
+-2, that might be a feature...
