Patch proposal

So here it comes the first temptative patch, including:

  - The code needed to plug the a11y hierarchies in the UI and Web processes as if it was just one (from the POV of ATs like Orca)
  - New accessibility unit test for WK2, with all the needed infrastructure to test this thing (mainly a helper process running a simple WebKitView + the actual test inspecting that helper process through ATSPI)
  - New dependency added (required for the unit test): ATSPI2
  - Some changes in the run-gtk-test script, so it makes sure that the accessibility support is available before running the tests

Just one little last thing: in order to be able to get this new unit test running properly, you need to make sure that you have installed both at-spi2-core and the at-spi2 ATK bridge (called at-spi2-atk in some systems, and libatk-adaptor in others). If you have that, and were able to build the patch (which means you have libatspi2.0-dev installed too), run-gtk-test should be able to do all the rest of the magic.

Of course, this initial patch doesn't intend to be 100% feature complete, bug-free or the like... but an initial -yet good-enough- first step to iterate from, in order to provide proper accessibility support in WebKit2GTK.

That's it... for now
