I see... I do not like the idea of breaking valid package dependency. 
Oxygen-gtk3 is actually uses symbols from libgtk and it feels wrong to remove 
valid dependency for no good reason. Besides there may be situations when GTK 
application is not installed using package management system (e.g. from 
sources to /usr/local) in which case it won't be useful to have broken 
relationships between packages. When it is ever useful?

I am not convinced and I think little gain is not worth introducing RC-
critical bug (missing dependency).
