I don't think Mark is going to achieve anything in a Jaguar. Sure he is impressing fellow drivers and fans with good performances but these would be almost winning performances in a better car. I think he deserves a better car than the Jag.
He was being very diplomatic. If he gets an offer from Williams and Jag haven't met the performance cluases in their contract I doubt he will hang around.
You may remember just after the aus grand prix that ralf schumacher was rumoured to be going to renault, the day after webber arrived in hobart for some reason and was asked about that at the airport. At first a smile started to come out, he then restrained himself and said 'really?', but you could tell from just his body language he was pretty happy to hear about another top seat opening up this season
I also have seen some pics of webber having a chat to some highly ranked williams people, I will try to dig them up.
Don't forget though that Flavio Briatore actually holds Webbers contract, and lets him drive for Jaguar. If Briatore wants him at Renault, Webber might not have any option, from what I have worked out from all the talk about contracts.
So whether Williams wants him, and whether they can get him, is going to be a case of money as well as Webbers aspirations, me thinks.

How much boost?
Renault appears to be a stronger team than Williams at the moment, But I suppose Williams are capable of being stronger when things are running well. Webber's more professional than to adopt Montoya's/Mc Laren's early publicising of the switch from Williams next year. While he's a driver for Jaguar, he'll publicly be committed to them and only announce team changes late in the season.
Yes, I am an agent of Satan, but my duties are largely ceremonial.
I Think Renault are a bit like 888 Racing in the V8's at the moment, they seem to be improving very well so if Webber drove there it wouldnt be that bad, on that topic though BAR have easily improved most compared with last year and Mclaren have seem to not made any improvments or gone backwards even
