Yes, the need was for automated command line tool which I can use 
without requiring any user interaction.

I don't see how import would do as one would need to have something
open up browser to some page and how could import know when the page
is opened and rendered etc.

The solution I'm looking is like the mentioned python scripts,
it hasn't have to be in python. But as long as it is able to
do it without user interaction.

gnome-python2-gtkhtml2 might be able to do it, as it has
/usr/share/doc/gnome-python2-gtkhtml2-2.25.3/simple-browser.py with

But I'm not familiar with that so for me it's more easier
just to bite and compile mozembed and continue using the system I have.

I'm just wondering what has been RedHat's idea of not supporting
python with mozembed nor webkit and is there alternative that I don't 
know about. But based on first answers, maybe not.
