If we revert the change which added this package apart from one hunk in
debian/rules then we get a package set which simply doesn't have
wx.html2 (rather than a broken one), which seems good so I've uploaded.

I wouldn't rely on a switch to GTK+ 3 happening for buster - I did a bit
of work towards it, and upstream are responsive to reports of bugs under
GTK+ 3 (at least when they can reproduce them) but unfortunately I don't
really have the time to drive this forwards currently, and nobody else
seems to be actively working on it.
