About GNUStep.

Ok, I know this is off topic, but it's a genuine question. I'm not trying to flame the guys on GNUStep either, I know they have their (few) hands full.

But is there a reason why every single platform on earth is sporting a Webkit implementation except for the one in which it seems to make more sense: GNUStep?

You gave the answer -- porting WebKit is highly nontrivial. Perhaps all it takes is one dedicated developer, but he would have to be quite experienced in GNUstep and also willing to put in many hundreds of hours.

You can't just adapt the OSX port because calls to CoreFoundation are sprinkled throughout. Also, if you ask the WebKit people, they would strongly suggest a cleanroom port for future maintainability.
