Yeah, um, I looked into removing Eclipse from Buster and from what I
saw, it did not appear practical. See my report at comment #130
Eclipse is the only remaining reverse-depends of #879170 in Testing
once tuxguitar migrates soon. So if we ignore Eclipse, we're left with
the RC bug I am fixing in my NMU being the only thing keeping
webkitgtk from being removed from Buster.
There's also https://bugs.debian.org/879228 but I'm hoping that will
be solvable and in my opinion it doesn't need to block webkitgtk's
removal. I am mentioning both of these outstanding RC bugs in the RM
bug I plan to file with the Release Team next week so it will be up to
them to decide.
