What if it's built against Qt 5.6, with QtWebKit installed from the
repository? That's the way Qt still supports so far, and as far as I
know, they ensure it still compiles.

I'm guessing that's what distributions will do (at least I confirmed
Archlinux will), so it'd be sad if they had to drop PyQt5.QtWebKit.
