No, it isn't, but we have just landed it, so we can add a way to disable
gestures somehow, either compile time or adding a new setting. Note that
gestures only work on real touch screens and when the touch screen is
used, the interaction with keyboard and mouse hasn't changed at all.

Just out of curiosity, but what's that context where zoom gesture not
working is a good thing?

Tap and drag work in WebKit1 using a recent enough GTK+ version, because
those features are implemented by GtkScrolledWindow.
