kodi-bin was chosen to have kodi-x11 as the default, if all "bin"
packages provide kodi-bin and kodi depends on "kodi-bin", by default
there would be kodi-gdbm installed, which most people can't actually
use. So by having kodi-bin as an actual package which holds kodi-x11
that is still most used, users of kodi-wayland or kodi-gdbm can install
those alongside or alone to suit there needs.
