Serious answer: the Emacs dependency on unsupported WebKit was added
two months ago and can be avoided by changing a configure flag:
So fortunately it's not too serious of a problem. There are other apps
on that list that can be "ported" with a configure flag change as well.
E.g. GIMP only uses WebKit for its help center; we should disable that
so that user help opens in the user's default browser instead.
Removing these old WebKit packages would help avoid introducing such
issues when maintainers do not realize that webkitgtk3 is unsupported
