(I would really like opinions from our GNOME maintainers on this.)
Seeing as vte3 0.38.0 in [testing] has a new API, I went ahead a
created a todo list to rebuild the packages that depend on the old
libvte2_90 library. 
Patches that port the affected software to the new API might not be
available at the moment and it could be a while until upstream
developers add support for vte-2.91 (see  for an example).
To solve this I suggest we keep the old library around for some time
to allow software to be ported to the new API.
The actions taken would be to:
1) Repackage the old library as vte3-2.90 (or vte-2.90, not sure about the name)
2) Move etc/profile.d/vte.sh from vte3 to vte-common to fix the file conflict
(Example PKGBUILD is attached.)
