I don't think it's all that bad. Currently we have:

  KHTML -> WebCore -> Cocoa


  KHTML -> QT -> Linux

I don't think KWQ will add much overhead, it's going to be essentially:

  KHTML -> Wine -> Linux

And I don't think QT/X11 is all that much faster than Wine.

But we do integrate with pthreads right now, it should just work, no?
