I can apreciate that it's unrealistic at the current time to port any heavy C++ code, and writing your own may have been the best course of action at the time, but just keep your options open.

As for the porting the whole of firefox vs just gecko.. porting any library and not using it is pointless, but it would simplify the task of writing any browser if the renderer was a drop-in component, hence why there's mabie 20 or so mini-browsers for windows all using IE as a drop-in rendering engine.
