We are working on GPU process mode for WinCairo and PlayStation ports.
It's still in the experimental phase, and far from production quality.
It's too early to say OK to remove non-GPU process mode.
However, it should be our desired goal.

I'm wondering how much common code can be removed without removing WebKit1.
When will we remove WebKit1?
