Kind request to package kpart-webkit for modern Debian versions

Hello, mailing list.

Is there any chance to get kpart-webkit package into newer Debian versions? https://packages.debian.org/stretch/kpart-webkit

This package allows to use Webkit renderer in Konqueror browser. This renderer is outdated and not compatible with all the websites, however it is much faster and lower on RAM consumption than modern WebEngine used by default. This would allow to browse the web using very low-end machines by current standards, such as 32-bit PCs with 512 MB RAM.

Debian is basically the only major Linux distribution which still supports i386, and there's Webkit packaged for Surf and Qutebrowser packages, and it's even present as a module for KDE Frameworks (libkf5webkit5), but it can't be used in Konqueror due to missing kpart.

Kindly asking to bring old kpart-webkit package from Stretch to newer Bullseye, to extent the lifespan of older hardware. Surf and QuteBrowser still could be used, but that browsers are aimed at keyboard controls, not a regular interface such as Konqueror.

P.S. libkf5webkit5 package description says it provides kpart component, which is does not. Could it be the whole reason of missing webkit in Konqueror?
