Some time ago I updated the Emacs xwidget feature to use the latest
webkit, so we shouldn’t be using the old one here.

I would suggest not to add this package, because the xwidgets feature
currently isn’t all that useful.  There is very little communication
between Emacs and the widget.  Work was underway (and has since stalled)
to use gobject introspection to expose the webkit API to Elisp.

I’d suggest to wait until this feature is more useful.

Alex, I’m closing this bug now, but you’re welcome to submit another
patch that adds a separate emacs-with-xwidgets package and I won’t
reject it despite my opinion of current state of the feature.
