Currently the fbo to image conversion is the only way to render a
QWebPage that contains WebGL to a QPainter due to

i.e. painting a QWebView with WebGL content works due to the fbo to
image conversion. Painting a QGraphicsWebView with QGLWidget viewport
paints everything but the WebGL content (it is always painted to the
QGLWidget not to the target QPainter).

So I' vote to keep it fo rnow.
