Yes, Lars has stated his intention to completely remove this rendering

To do so, I'd assume the right way to go would be to turn -gtkhtml
into a dummy package that pulls -xulrunner in.

In that case, the separate liferea-xulrunner package would be rather
pointless, as liferea would just pull it inconditionally. Should both
packages be just merged into one? Would *that* be too much of a change
to get into etch?
