xfce4-terminal depends on python-vte / libvte9, which are deprecated
in favor of gir1.2-vte-2.91 / libvte-2.91-0. Thus we want to remove
src:vte from the archive. xfce4-terminal should switch to the new vte

Please try to do this before the Stretch release as we're going to
try to remove src:vte this cycle.

We'll bump this to serious when the list of rdeps is small and we're
getting ready to removing vte completely.

If you have any question don't hesitate to ask.
