* gnu/packages/web-browsers.scm (qutebrowser/wayland): New variable.
---
Create a package that can be used with Wayland, like UnGoogled
Chromium and Icecat have.

There's a difference though; here qutebrowser uses Qt, and qtwayland
works as a plugin, so as long as it's found in your user profile it
should just work.  Is it not the case?

I'd like to avoid adding package variants if possible.

I'm running XWayland and, at one point, it just stopped working (would launch in X, instead); it's been a while since I ran it (I've been running this version, instead) but I think that was why I wrote this up. Even when it was working, launching it from an X app. would cause it to run as X. I remember it being really annoying in unexpected ways and not always predictable.

OK; I'll close the issue, but if someone else encounters a problem
attempting to use qutebrowser on wayland (despite installing qtwayland
in their user profile), let's reopen and revisit it.
