This was added in gobject-introspection_1.42.0-2

In my other email I suggested to use a versioned b-dep on
gobject-introspection (>= 1.41.4-1) or (>= 1.41.4-1~), since that was
the first version where libgirepository became multi-arch aware.

Given the above, it's probably better to bump that to 1.42.0-2, to
ensure those ma gir packages have such a strict dependency.

Why is it that all of the instruments seeking intelligent life in the
universe are pointed away from Earth?
