Hi Gustavo,

Thanks for your answer. For some reason, I wasn't expecting independent
packages for the runtimes. Also found the Debian's introspection
mini-policy [1].

I could install the package, but the import (from gi.repository import
Gtk, Gdk, GObject, WebKit) didn't seem to find the WebKit runtime
(WebKit-1.0.typelib) even if seems to be in the proper path
(/usr/lib/girepository-1.0/). As long as that's not the same issue, I'll
investigate a bit more to guess what's happening.
