I don't find this "External diff" function in gitk anymore, although
meld can still be found in gitk's preferences as "External diff tool".
So probably a gitk suggests meld would still make sense.

However nowadays I think git-gui should recommend or at least suggest
meld, because as Git-citool it uses it as merge tool. This is something
I regularly use. But on a freshly installed system with git-gui and gitk
meld wasn't installed, and not even hinted for.

Reassigning to src:git because I only request any dependency on meld.
Attached patch takes the minimal approach and only adds a suggests meld
to git-gui.
