Okay.  You might want to talk to Todd Berman or Ben Maurer from
MonoDevelop; those guys have had a hell of a time with GtkMozEmbed, and
the anecdotal evidence is pretty damning:
        <tberman> oh dude, do NOT switch to gtkmozembed
        <Nat> yeah?
        <tberman> i dont care what you think you might get out of it,
        its a TOTAL headache
        <Nat> is it really?
        <tberman> yeah, its really difficult, we are using it in MD, and
        it works alright at times, but its a fucking hog to load, and
        generally evil to customize
I *do* think the benefits would be pretty substantial, so I'm not going
to try to discourage you too much :-)
