I never used svn externals, so I don't know what the limitations are.
A WebKit nightly is about 8Mb compressed.
Unfortunately, they had the (very, very) bad idea of putting all their web
sites, test cases, ... in the svn trunk, so there is more than 1Gb (!!) of
(for us) unnecessary junk.
If we want to link, we will have to "cherry pick" the right subdirs.

I guess you mean "let's go with the WebKit way". Fine for me.

Legal yahoo support would certainly merit a 0.0.11 release on it's

BTW, regarding versioning, I assumed we were at 0.11(.0). We should change
the about box then.
I actually think we could bump till at least 0.5.0 or even 0.9.0.
I don't think 0.0.x is representative of the advancement of the project ;-)
