>    29   webkit

I've run into problems with this one, and think it should be split.  At 
minimum, there's qt-webkit and webkit-gtk.  As a kde user I want qt-webkit 
but for instance, the gimp pulls in webkit-gtk if USE=webkit is set 
globally, which I do NOT want, especially since one of /its/ pulled-in 
dependencies appears to be the libproxy that was giving kde users so many 
problems at one point. (I don't know if it still does as I don't have it 
installed, but that bug DEFINITELY has me steering a WIDE path around 
libproxy.)

So IMO this one should really be split into webkit-qt and webkit-gtk or 
some such, since it's really referring to two (at least) different things.
