debian vs gtkhtml

LogJam 4.3 hit Debian:

logjam (4.3.0-1) unstable; urgency=low
[...]
   * Drop gtkhtml3 support, there are way too many dependencies for so
     little functionality. (Closes: #199747)

This sucks. I understand compwiz's position but it punishes the end user.

Options:
  • leave gtkhtml out of binaries (displeases pretty much everyone who has to use them, as you lose html preview and offline browsing)
  • include gtkhtml in debian binaries (displeases people who don't want gtkhtml dependencies)
  • make gtkhtml required (displeases everybody who for some reason can't figure out how to get a linux distro where dependencies aren't a problem)
  • make my own debian packages
Thoughts?
