We can do that anyway (and must do it before landing 3.26). The
improvement we get by making this change before stretch is released
is that if we do, the mass-bug-filed packages won't need a versioned
Depends on gnome-settings-daemon (>> stretch), which should make apt's
job easier during the dist-upgrade from stretch to buster.

Also, by fixing this in stretch, any maintainers who make this change
as a side-effect of importing a new upstream version into buster won't
be introducing a RC bug (missing versioned dependency >> previous branch)
into their packages.
