I wasn't the original author, but i am curious:  Is the WebKit
documentation and WebBrowser documentation available (I presume the
latter from msdn is available)...  I might be interested in helping to
add some of the missing functionality back myself.  I have an app in
.net i'm working on that uses WebBrowser to accomplish some things, and
last i checked these things were broken by the new internet explorer in
windows 8 beta, so maybe getting them to work with WebBrowser/WebKit in
mono might resolve this.

Like I said elsewhere, i don't want to get involved in any big projects
until sometimes in August, or really start on anything new until then. 
But this sounds like fun.  Is there a bug report which mentions the
incomplete WebKit/WebBrowser linkage?  I'd love to bookmark it for later.
