Yes, you have to run the PAC script every time. But you don't have to:
- load a fresh copy of the WebKit library into a process which didn't
previously have it
- work out where the PAC file comes from (by asking ConnMan)
- download the PAC file
- parse/interpret the PAC file for the first time
Pushing WebKit into *every* client seems like the wrong approach.
