Well, if you look back through wine-devel's archives when this last came
up, I had a KHTML running natively without stubbing (much, there were a
few for simple heavily used classes like QString). We had this very same
discussion then too, that we really need to stub in order to keep track of
upstream. I started writing a wrapper, but then Safari was released and
people were talking about porting WebCore to Win32.

I paused my work about then, firstly because of the C++ in CVS issue
(writing stubs and wrappers is fairly easy but tedious, and if none of the
work could go into CVS anyway..)... But also because I was being lazy and
hoping that the WebCore port would get to point I could at least use it as
a base. Obviously that never happened :(
