The is just a header fix for an inadvertant API change that was 
made in 3.0.3.

You really only need the ec6e54b commit in order to bring in WebKit2 
support.  There have been a few build system fixes and cleanups since then 
but they aren't crucial.

But yes, you are right - the much bigger issue here is switching to GTK3. 
Support for that should be much better in 3.0.3, though.
