We are not really deprioritizing Fancy (litehtml will never be a full
replacement for something as advanced as webkit), it's just that porting
Fancy to a newer Webkit version will require entire Claws Mail to switch
from GTK2 to GTK3, and that is still some ways off.

Feel free to check out the "gtk3" branch from our git repository and
see for yourself. It is mostly working, including the Fancy plugin. In
fact, it could use more people using it and reporting found issues.
