Yeah, that sounds sane. Unfortunately we (mostly myself) underestimated
the amount of work that it would take and overestimated the help we
would get, which is never a good thing.

We briefly discussed this issue during the recent webkit hackfest and we
are trying to figure out a more sustainable way of providing security
support. If anyone would like to help, we can nominate people to the
webkit security mailing list, and have an IRC meeting along with other
WebKitGTK+ people to see what we could do about this, what do you say?
