Is there an option to disable these?  Configure-time or API?

Not that I'm likely to update to this version any time soon (I'm still in WebKit1, as mentioned previously), but I'm using WebKitGTK in a context where I'm quite happy that the zoom gesture in particular does not work.

(FWIW, tap and drag already worked with the touchscreen that I'm using.  Although oddly right-click via EmulateThirdButton appears to have stopped working somewhere between 1.8.1 and 2.4.5, but as this was also Debian wheezy => jessie the fault may lie elsewhere.)
