Webkit Support Progress

In SVN trunk the Webkit rendering has now correct context menu support. While I'm not sure that the Webkit API part handling the popup is a stable interface, for now it works. Epiphany doesn't seem to use the popup handling right now...

The good news is that this was the last missing functionality for the Webkit rendering. Now you can zoom in/out, copy links, open links in internal and external browser, bookmark pages with Webkit too.

Note: There are stability issues with Webkit. Users report random crashes when surfing and also crashes when using Flash. Hopefully this will improve in the future for Webkit rendering to become useful.
