The webkitgtk4-devel package already provides pkgconfig(webkit2gtk-4.0).
The GNOME system for naming pkg-config files is
<name>-<major-ver-series>, so it's clearer with the pkgconfig name
than the package name.
The naming of the packages was especially dumb in Fedora. It might
make sense to add some Provides that add sensible names, too.
The right name from upstream's POV (I talked to them when adding the
package to Fedora - and I was considering webkit2gtk3 as well) is
webkitgtk4 as the 4 on the ends means API version and it's not connected to
But during the last Web Engines Hackfest Michael was keen on renaming the
package to webkit2gtk3 (so we are ready for GTK+ 4 based WebKit).
