vim-airline and vim-airline-themes both depend on vim, which meas you must install vim (or gvim) when installing them. But they work with neovim as well. Since vim/gvim/neovim all provide vim-plugin-runtime, can it be the dependency?

Additional info:
* package version(s)
gvim 8.2.3441-1
neovim 0.5.1-2
vim-airline 0.11-1
vim-airline-themes r1386.63b66df-1
* config and/or log files etc.
* link to upstream bug report, if any

Steps to reproduce:
This task depends upon

The 'neovim-plugins' group does not exist yet in community. If we start to trace plugins compatible with neovim, maybe should we add this package to that group?

@ryolait: No need, vim-plugin-runtime is the shared one which is to be used when it works with either vim or neovim. If its neovim only or vim only we declare exactly that package in the depends.
