I think the only acceptable solution would be to distribute a prefs.js
file with epiphany with all mozilla defaults, tweaked for our needs,
like phoenix does.
I dont think this is possible though, it need to be installed in mozilla
If you distribute a .js with some prefs to override, even ignoring the
fact that mozilla api doesnt allow to load it, you have the problem of
when you need to load it. You could do an hack to do it only first time
epiphany is runned but then it will be never updated on new releases.

Many of these prefs are necessary for epiphany to work correctly.

I think a gconf pref for keywords search engine is necessary ... would
be good to post a bug.
