Ok, I am filing a new bug because the missing dependency should be
fixed in stretch.

This link says that Eclipse / swt-gtk 4.4 (released in 2014) has
initial support for gtk3 and webkit2gtk:

Unfortunately, eclipse and swt-gtk are very outdated in Debian:

$ reverse-depends -r sid libswt-webkit-gtk-3-jni
* eclipse-rcp —so outdated it really needs to be removed from Buster
before release if it's not upgraded regardless of this bug
* tuxguitar
* vuze — already removed from testing, see
* zekr — already removed from testing, see

Thank you,
