I am a bit torn about this.

I enable gtk3_kde5 right now, as I *do* know the users do want KDE5
integration (and Qt4 is dead, and packages in Debian should disable its
usage if possible, so I am not shipping the kde4 thingy, besides it being
"broken" as the fpickers need never-upstream-done Qt patches, see

As long as gtk3_kde5 works... and kde5 maybe not as-good...

I want to avoid the situations of the early gtk3 days when we enable it
and ran into many UI problems and thus we disabled it again...


 * debian/rules:
     - disable gtk3 for now again, too shaky
           (closes: #799251, #799049, #795131)

Debian buster will (most probably, unless I really try to "squeeze" 6.2 in,
compare the dates in [1] and [2]) freeze and release with 6.1.x.

OTOH, risking this in 6.2 and having even less time to shake stuff out in
"real-life" is worse.

As said, I am a bit torn about this :)
