Great work!

1.I'm wondering whether we should enable GTK+ 3 support for all the
packages, which has been requested[1].
2.You have disabled the generation of static library, which I'm
curious about the reason. You can safely ship those
files in -dev packages.
3.For symbols that should be private, it would be okay to patch the
build system to add a library version script,
so you can control which symbols are exported without touching many
source files.
4. It would be better not to override
package-needs-versioned-debhelper-build-depends, so it can remind us
to update Build-Dep
field when debhelper 9 is out.
