Wouldn't libwxgtk-webview3.0-0v5 need to be renamed anyway? So maybe
it's ok to drop it and later you can reintroduce it with the new name
when you're ready to do your transition.

There are other packages blocking webkitgtk's removal from testing
[1], but personally I would appreciate if this package wasn't one of
them. :)
