[webkit-gtk] Silently failing to load web extensions

It looks like people who install Geary from source to /usr/local (more
common now that meson defaults to that as the install prefix) are
finding their web extensions not being loaded under Fedora for...
It would be good to have a more deterministic API for loading
extensions, so applications can determine when loading one has failed
and report an error, something like
"webkit_web_context_load_web_extension_async(const gchar *dir, const
gchar *name, ...)". Is this likely to be possible to implement?
As an aside, I note that Ephy is installing its web extensions to
`libexec`, despite extensions not being executables. Is that to work
around issues with /usr/local lib dirs not being on ld.so.conf paths?
