[Dev] QTWebengine is nonfree

Hi guys, since Chromium is blacklisted as nonfree software [0] we have a
serious issue. KDE is migrating their apps to QTWebEngine which contains
Chromium as the embed engine inside it. [1]

Blacklisting it could be a solution, however since it's an engine, a lot
of packages won't work without it and it will require a large task to
remove the entire QT/KDE framework.

What do you think is the best solution to this problem?

I feel that Chromium is nonfree and presents privacy risks due to
outstanding issues.
