stumbling over a specific who/mever case


Hello!  There are a few lines of dialog in a comic I'm workoing on that are giving me trouble when I attempt to figure the proper usage of  whom/whoever based on the grammar rules I've been reading.  Here is the dialog:


A: She seems happy -- don't you think Egglinton would want us to continue?

B: Oh, I'm sure he would... who(m)ever the cost.


Any help in this specific case (and ideally some explanation of why, so I don't run into this again) would be powerfully appreciated!
