WebCore is a set of Qt stubs as far as I know, which map Qt onto the
MacOS APIs. It's like Wine, but for Qt.

I seriously doubt that. You know the KDE guys as well as I do - they
love Qt, and insist on using it for everything. Having Qt removed from
the mainline KHTML/KJS will probably never happen, so building stubs is
a rather lame, but unfortunately required prerequisite to using it.
