I spoke with Sam Ruby about this the last time we chatted; I think it's
do-able, I just need to read up on the requirements.  Let me do that first
(homework) before starting a discussion.

As I alluded to, even if I could, today, ship the Web Inspector source from
WebKit, it would only be because all that code is BSD today.  Tomorrow,
someone could slip some LGPL in there (WebKit allows both BSD and LGPL
code), and then things get trickier.  Meaning, I need to allow for the fact
that we may not be able to ship the usable weinre blob directly out of
Apache, some day.  But for as long as I can, I'd like to make one available
at Apache.
