lol. As ridiculous as this looks, it does let us end up in a better place
down the road, assuming that people buy the readability argument for $.
Should a WebKit port decide to push this to stable users I see nothing wrong
with "-webkit-$". It's short-term ugly to avoid permanent ugly.

In either case, experimentability (sic) doesn't need to be a huge sticking
point for this proposal.
