Instead of making each leaf application depend on xdg-desktop-portal-gtk,
it would be easier and more correct for libwebkit2gtk-4.0-37 to depend
on xdg-desktop-portal-gtk. This has already been fixed in unstable,
in webkit2gtk 2.32.0-1, but that change has not yet reached bullseye.

I think this bug can be closed as fixed in webkit2gtk >= 2.32.0-1 when the
reassignment has been processed.

webkit2gtk maintainers: is 2.32.x targeted at bullseye? If yes, note that
it is going to need a release team unblock, and appears to be triggering
an autopkgtest regression in balsa.
