Package: libwebkit2gtk-4.0-37
Version: 2.10.3+dfsg1-1

Dear webkit2gtk maintainers,

I currently cannot remove GTK+ 2 from my system because of the following
dependency chain:

  mutter → zenity → libwebkit2gtk-4.0-37 → libgtk2.0-0

I see that libwebkit2gtk-4.0-37 ships a binary named WebKitPluginProcess2, which
which is linked against libgtk-x11-2.0.so.

Please either split that binary into a separate package, or exclude it from
calculation of shlibs:Depends.
