I think this is an interesting proposition. Although my understanding
is that when Apple made their modifications to Konqueror, they
returned the changes "as one large tarball". I think that meant that
no-one in the Linux world has re-integrated the changes.
Where Chrome sits in relation to WebKit, I'm not sure. I don't know
if Google took Webkit and built on that.
