Correct. I had assumed that it'd be easy to move to WebKit2, but I
didn't know about this:

Another approach that I toyed with in Geary was to increase the height
of the webview until it required no scrolling. This could be put in a
Gtk.Layout or similar, which would handle scrolling. Unfortunately,
this fails if your HTML content ever decreases in height. I could find
no way (short of polling) to find out when this happens and adjust the
webview's size. Maybe this isn't a concern for you.
Of course, you need to access the DOM to find the content height, and...

This may not be quite as bad as you're imagining it, at least if you're
developing new code. Michael Catanzaro and I put together a
demonstration of communicating with a plugin in the web process over
DBus . But as you say, trying to synchronize scrolling between two
processes is a scary proposition.
