Porting OWB? SDL?

I know it is hardly the same....but I heard there was an SDL port of OWB. I don't know how far that went or if it is still maintained, but one would think that would be somewhat easier to port. I would think an SDL port of OWB/Webkit rendering engine should be useful as a fallback for all OSes. You could then develop your own OS native browser application around it. Sure it would be lowest common denominator, but highly portable and especially useful for modernising the browsing experience for the more obscure OSes and hardware platforms out there. I could even see the rendering engine being embedded in applications for several purposes.
