As you may be aware, the Raspberry Pi foundation has been using WebKit1,
mostly because they see having multiple processes as waste of resources.
I am not so sure that having separate processes causes that much waste
myself, but thought I'd mention their case here at least.

I am personally in favour of removing the code from trunk, too.
