To be clear: that means any wxGTK3 app that does not use the web view
widget will be perfectly safe, and that's probably 95% of them.
OK, so I created a wxGTK3-webview subpackage containing the library that
currently depends on webkitgtk3. I also created a similar
wxPython-webview subpackage for the wxPython module. (I grepped the code
of all wxPython-dependent packages and found none of them using the
webview module, so there should be nothing to do with them.)
After doing this, the number of packages recursively depending on
webkitgtk3 went from 296 to 127!
