 FWIW, I've been using gtk3 with gtk2 since January 2011 - needed it
for epiphany (possibly, for the webkitgtk version packaged by debian)
at that time.  OTOH, in my current build gtk3 is only used for
gvolwheel (there is an older version which uses gtk2) and current
gucharmap.  So in my case, it is possible that I will drop it if I
can find a replacement for gucharmap - that isn't urgent, gucharmap
still works well for me.

 If anybody cares - so far I've only built as far as LibreOffice and
gucharmap, I've still got a load of things to build after I finish
converting all my .abw and .gnumeric files (on an older system), but
I very much doubt that I'll be using gtk3 in the remaining packages.
I've also dropped gtk-doc and gobject-introspection and fixed the
couple of packages which assumed introspection would be present.
Anyone building gnumeric probably *does* still need gtk-doc.

 Summary - build as many versions of gtk+ as you wish (a long while
ago, I built both 1 and 2).
