I would not hold my breath. Think of this: QtWebkit is a browser engine 
wrapped in Qt. Qt WebEngine is another one (Blink). Jolla has their browser 
based on a third browser engine. Linux distributions are not specially happy 
with Qt WebEngine:


I would expect Jolla to be at the same level of discomfort, or more. :-(
