Update seed to use webkit2-gtk

Please update seed to use webkit2-gtk rather than webkit-gtk.

The older version of webkit-gtk hasn't been supported upstream for quite some time and is full of vulnerabilities.

It appears that seed doesn't really use webkit-gtk per se but only libjavascriptcoregtk. The current version supports either javascriptcoregtk-1.0 or javascriptcoregtk-3.0 provided by webkit-gtk and webkit-gtk3 respectively. However, upstream git contains recent updates to a forthcoming seed @4.0 with support for javascriptcoregtk-4.0 provided by webkit2-gtk as the default. See
