[webkit-gtk] Isolated Worlds Status

After a quick look I see some usage of WebKit2GTK+ API in Uzbl. Is the
project planning to move onto using that API or is your general wish of
isolated worlds support limited to the WebKit1 API?

I'm asking because I believe the focus of development is slowly shifting
towards WebKit2GTK+ so adding isolated worlds support there would be most
beneficial to the project.
