I have set up a simple environment which allows to use both 1.0.x and 1.1.x
GTK+/glib stuff. I use *-1.1 and *-1.0 suffices for all files/directories and
then a small script sets up symlinks to either of them.

Unfortunately, a) dpkg now thinks the stuff is broken and b) this gets all
messed up when I install new GTK/glib packages.

What do you think about my approach?
