Bug Description


Even though it's flagged as experimental, there is a lot of excitement around it, and it's still opt-in. It looks like it requires rclone, which is not in main, but the same trick used for pydrive can be used, and then it can be installed at run-time if the user selects restic.

https://gitlab.gnome.org/World/deja-dup/-/blob/main/PACKAGING.md has some advice for packagers around enabling restic support.

(Though note that it references the new `-Dpackagekit=enabled` flag which only exists in 44.x. Just ignore that for 43.x. PackageKit is automatically used as long as it exists at build time in 43.x)
