AFAIK whether or not to accept WebKit as a dependency is not only
related to whether or not there will be a "working" epiphany release
at the same time. There's other modules planning to move from gecko to
webkit, and I think that for all of them WebKit is already good enough
minus the a11y regression (that's why this is a blocker). In any case,
the current plan for Epiphany is to release some kind of alpha/beta
version of the webkit port at the same time than 2.26, and declare it
stable or good enough by 2.28, but as with any other volunteer-based
project this can wildly fluctuate depending on what people actually
end up doing (that being said, I'm happy with the major progress in
the last two or three months).
