Looks like I missed
which touches on WebKit right?
And SDL1.3 might also be of interest, I think there's been many
changes from 1.2 to 1.3 so the BeOS code will probably need to be
brought up to date, and looking at SDL's idea page they list "porting
to new platforms". http://www.libsdl.org/gsoc-ideas.php
