dh_girepository will generate a dependency on libgirepository-1.0-1
(>= 1.41.4-1) via ${gir:Depends} for those gir packages.

gobject-introspection itself has a Depends on libgirepository-1.0-1 (=

So, as soon as you start using ma gir packages in your package, it's
guaranteed that gobjection-introspection/dh_girepository is recent enough.
