Ok, now we are working on 3.0.0 and I want this branch to be merged.

I plan to merge this branch some day during the next week if nobody objects.

The status of the branch is this:
* Webkit succesfully working on the gtkconv.
* The AdiumTheme plugin works ok, this must be moved to a theme loader.
* IMHTML is still there and must be killed.
* I have broke some dialogs (help*) while removing some instances of imhtml.

I think we can focus on this branch at the same time we play hide-a-struct.

What do you think?
