Hello Mike,

<> looks pretty exciting, which
motivates me to take a look at this patch.  :-)

As you may know, Guix contains a variant of ‘ungoogled-chromium’, which
goes to great lengths to remove non-free software, DRM support, spyware, etc.

The problem is that QtWebEngine bundles Chromium.  We would need to
“unbundle” it and/or replace it with ‘ungoogled-chromium’.  I’m not sure
how hard that is.

Have you thought about this?  Would you like to give it a try?
