Bug#824192: wine: please add new wine-gecko source package

Package: wine
Version: 4.0.2-1
Followup-For: Bug #824192


I was wondering if somebody is working on this, as it is somehow annoying. In the
past the wine in Debian would at least try to download wine gecko from official
binary files at winehq.org, and now even that is gone, I understand disabling it,
but lack of good alternative is worrying.

Simillary problem is with wine-mono.


user@debian:~/w/GPUPerfStudio3.6.41.0$ wine GPUPerfClient.exe 
0086:err:ole:CoGetContextToken apartment not initialised
Could not load wine-gecko. HTML rendering will be disabled.
0075:err:mshtml:create_document_object Failed to init Gecko, returning CLASS_E_CLASSNOTAVAILABLE

Browsing in-program help doesn't work (no content rendered).

I know it is know (and documented in README.Debian.gz), but I couldn't find exact
details what are the current blockers to build it in Debian using debian
libraries. Is it because it is somehow forked vesion of Gecko? It is fully
understandable tho, and can be considered a separate project, as it provides
completly different functionality than gecko. Is it a security support?
Or some other reasons?

Thank you.
