 hehe.  i'm the maintainer of pythonwebkit -
http://www.gnu.org/software/pythonwebkit - i've kinda been looking for
an excuse to update it and also add "proper" python-qt DOM bindings.
you would not believe how unbelievably slow and how much memory
qtwebkit uses under qt4.  at least double what anything else is.

so i'm just throwing ideas out, at this stage.  but, if i use the
pythonwebkit port of webkit, full python bindings to the entire DOM
model - as if it was javascript not python (just exactly the same
function names, properties and object names) - get thrown in "for
free".

 what sort of doors would that open up, for people, if qt3 - and kde -
had both a qtwebkit widget, as well as full python bindings to the DOM
model?  (caveat: i can't get you full c++ DOM bindings to webkit,
because the python bindings are "direct" i.e. they do *not* go via qt
objects.  at all).
