right i am not speaking of core applications.

- nautilus-gtkhtml
- encompass
- devhelp
- yelp (has definately a good solution for either choice)
- atlantis (still new but on freeze because of this situation)

and probably there are more apps outside that use it. apps that we don't
know about yet.

right ... but somehow the situation of gtkhtml2 is unclear to me.
gtkhtml2 HEAD has been getting some changes over the last couple of
weeks (not necessarily the a11y stuff). stuff like:

- 'maybe'
- 'don't know yet'
- 'let's see the future'

or similar things are no answer since my and probably other's work
depend on this. a clear 'YES' or 'NO' will do it better. if it's 'NO'
then i can trash my work and go doing something else.
