I admit that I was thinking about WebKitQt name before Allan proposed it,
for the same reason + because project becomes somewhat more "WebKitish"
and less "Qtish" over the time.

However I have the same concern as Florian, i.e. difference is too subtle
to eleminate confusion, and too significant for seamless update.

BTW, I think it's not strictly necessary to equate public name of the project
and basename of the final component of repo url. For instance, new repo could be
at qt/webkit.git. Optionally with snapshots and tags pushed into qt/qtwebkit.git
for convenience of packagers.
