Epub support is not complete, you can see epubs, but none of the
toolbars work. The old Read had a wrapper built around pywebkitgtk
that exposed an API similar to libevview <2.28. Because the API of
libevview >=2.30 is so different, I didn't get around to porting the
webkit wrapper. In fact, I'm not even sure it's a good idea.
Also, my work was on a somewhat old Read. I was hoping Read's
maintainer would use my branch to port mainline, with whatever design
for the epub view the maintainer considered a good idea.
