I also tried this some time before, but there were some other packages
that had to be updated. I am not sure if GTK3 is needed, which isn't
supported yet. So I had to give up because I was running out of time.

I am sure this is simply due to the fact that nobody had time to do it
or needed a newer version.

Quite sure that you would get help here on the list if you decide to
bump webkit's version.

When I'm back in my office I'll review my recent work and give you some
more details.

Kind regards
