Depends: ia32-libs-gtk (<= 2.6)

It does not depend on libgtk2.0-0 (i386) but installing libgtk2.0-0
(i386) would break it. That I would really like to avoid.

Also some libraries do have conffiles or binaries and will get into a
file conflict with or without the multiarch library path. They need a
Replaces/Conflicts line anyway. Chief among them libc6 (i386)
vs. libc6-i386.
