[Bug 1689313] [NEW] Have Flash recommend libwebkit2gtk-4.0-37-gtk2


Public bug reported:

Please have flashplugin-installer and adobe-flashplugin recommend

That package is needed for GTK3 Webkit2 browsers like Epiphany to use

Of course, the alternative is to have Epiphany recommend
libwebkit2gtk-4.0-37-gtk2 itself (that is what was done in Ubuntu 17.04;
before that, webkit itself recommended the gtk2 version). But that's not
entirely right either since the only thing Epiphany needs the gtk2
support for is for Flash and Epiphany's package does not recommend

Moving this dependency would make it easier to have a computer without
gtk2 and it would make it more obvious what exactly requires gtk2 (LP:

libwebkit2gtk-4.0-37-gtk2 is currently in universe but its source is in
main. It was in main before webkit stopped recommending it in 17.04.
