[dev] Using a different rendering engine for surf

So, we all know that Webkit is a mess, and GTK+ for that matter.
However, WebkitGTK does a reasonable job of rendering the mess of the
modern web, hence surf using it.

I wonder, has anyone looked at Hubbub/LibCSS, the HTML & CSS rendering
libraries of NetSurf? I gave them the briefest of glances today, and
they look pretty nice. They're certainly *a lot* smaller and simpler
than WebkitGTK.

It'd be really really nice to try porting surf to these libraries, and
see how things go.
