Actually, it is worse than an embedded copy since with an embedded copy
you can at least share patches between the system lib and the embedded
copy. This is generally not possible with qtwebkit-source and webkit in
Ubuntu, because qtwebkit-source contains a copy of the QTWebKit source
code which is a different upstream source than webkit (WebKitGTK+).
