Think about likely future changes, such as: package reorganisation in
the *gir*gdk*pixbuf* packages; new versions of those packages (which
might result in new binary package names but not new -dev package
names);e tc.

Putting the binary packages in a hint-testsuite-triggers test would
mean that your package tests would still mostly work even if the
binary package names changed, provided the -dev package(s) are the
same or are still pulled in.  You could update the
hint-testsuite-triggers for the new binaries at your leisure.
