Sounds good to me, too. This means the setting is enabled by default and WebGL will only work
when a GL viewport is used, right?

I.e. as a developer I can only see WebGL working with QtWebKit once I use a GL viewport (i.e. render all web content with the gl paint engine),
I don't have to toggle any extra setting anymore. Is that correct?
