The question about multiple file ownership is interesting and certainly
useful for people who want to ship parallel installable gtk2 and gtk3
versions of a library, but ...
... gtkhash is an application. Why would an user want two copies of the
same app, compiled against different versions of GTK+?
We wouldn't. Although we have apps that build separate GTK and QT frontends,
so I suppose there's some precedence. But it's still a bad idea.
