Plug-ins run in their own separate process. The plug-in process
uses GTK+ 2 because there are a number of plug-ins (including Flash)
which are using GTK 2. Unfortunately, there is no easy way of
building WebKitGTK with the plug-in process disabled--although
it should be possible without much tweaking.
