Wayland is on the horizon for Linux. X doesn't have an infinite
life ahead of it, it dates from the 1980s and the free OS world
is working to move past it (thus Wayland). I suspect that simply
adopting Webkit (which is LGPL already) directly will probably fix
most potential portability problems, since the Webkit people have to
support whatever is used on most platforms already.
