Hi Guix,

qutebrowser fails to start with the recent python-pyqt upgrade,
possibly due to the removed qtwebkit input.

The following error occurs:
---

Fatal error: QtWebEngine is required to run qutebrowser but could not
be imported! Maybe it's not installed?

The error encountered was:
No module named 'PyQt5.QtWebEngineWidgets'

Please search for the python3 version of QtWebEngine in your
distributions packages, or install it via pip.

Please search for the python3 version of QtWebEngine in your
distributions packages, or install it via pip.

As part of upgrading Qt to 5.11 the pyqt module for qtwebkit broke so
qtwebkit was removed from pyqt in an attempt to allow other packages
that didn't rely on it to continue working. Unfortunately qutebrowser
got caught up in the middle.

Realistically we'd need to either re-enable qtwebkit as an input for
pyqt or package qtwebengine and use that in pyqt.

Actually packaging qtwebengine seems to be the better way. Anyone working
on that?
