The only doubt I have about this approach is when to actually trigger 
the text search. Note that results will be provided using signals. If 
the webview starts the search before returning the WebKitFind object 
there is no guarantee that we will not loose any signal emission. On the 
other hand having a webkit_web_view_find_text() + webkit_find_find() 
(with the WebKitFind object starting the search) looks awkward to me too.
