Philippe, sorry to not have replied to your private mail. My queue is
just too long these days.

The reason they has not been integrated in gtkmozembed is that Blizzard,
the mantainer of that code, want to keep api very simple. I'm not sure
which extensions you need, I'd check with him if he would accept patches
for them before decide to use ephy/galeon widget.

I have no problem with that. But all contributors should give permission
I guess ? (I'm not a license expert at all).
Consider that the widget add some gnome dependencies.

In general if you could explain which functionalities you need I could
be a lot more helpful.
