Re: Drop support for WebKit-1

We have a long-standing goal of dropping support for the security-challenged WebKit-1 HTML widget. A new 
GitLab branch 'drop-webkit1' implements it. Anyone who believes this might be a problem should check out the 
branch and test it. If no one reports an issue, it will be merged to master in one week.

IMO, this is a really good idea!  However, what about the GtkHtml support, shouldn't it be removed, too?  
I.e. leave webkit2 as only html option?  Citing myself re. the status of GtkHtml:

However, I wonder if the GtkHtml project is still alive.  I don't see any Debian/Ubuntu packages, the NEWS on 
Github [1] is almost three years old, and the German Wikipedia states it's used in Evolution only, as all 
other projects moved to webkit2.  Thus, if webkit2 is supported on all distos which are still maintained 
(true for Debian Jessie and Ubuntu Trusty at least), we might want to remove the support for gtkhtml and old 
webkit1 completely.
