Reading backlog on channels today, I saw this in #plasma:

[02:12] <mgraesslin> hmm looks like kmail with qtwebengine is faster
in opening mails, that would be positive
[02:12] <notmart> yay
[02:12] <notmart> but distribution will ever package it now?
[02:13] --> soee (~soee at bhr157.neoplus.adsl.tpnet.pl) has joined this channel.
[02:13] <bshah> qtwebengine?
[02:15] <notmart> yeah, qtwebengine and in turn anything using it
[02:15] <mgraesslin> well kdepim now depends on it
[02:15] <notmart> like, we haz a "beautiful" mobile web browser
written one year and an half ago... :p
[02:16] <mgraesslin> so distros need to either package it or drop kdepim
[02:18] <notmart> yep
[02:18] <bshah> arch packages it
[02:19] <bshah> but well debian and friends.. meh
[02:19] <mgraesslin> the deb-based distros don't

I'm assuming that Debian doesn't package it because of policy -
chromium inside of qtwebengine evidently embeds its own dependencies,
which is ... ick.

I looked it up on the Qt website: http://doc.qt.io/qt-5/qtwebengine-index.html

If KDEPim will now depend on it, we have no choice, I think? Shall I
file a packaging bug against it?
