The better support for embedding python into other programs is a new
feature of python 3.8. I don't feel that we should backport this to
pkgsrc just for this issue.

Thanks for the test.  Is it still the case that liferea follows the
gnome version scheme with even numbers in the second position are
stable and odd numbers are unstable versions? (I.e. 1.12.x stable,
1.13.x unstable).
