So then I guess what you should probably do is file bugs in the Mozilla,
Chrome, and WebKit bug trackers at least.

Yeah, maybe so.

We'll review any patch submitted and if it's an improvement, it'll likely end

you can  just post it here and we can see if Henri's agreeable to it and go
from there.
