The only problem that I see with this is that we have two JSC
packages, for the gtk+2 and gtk+3 builds. They're probably not any
different and can be merged, but if that's the case, that's something
that should be fixed upstream.

Anyway, it probably doesn't make much sense to provide both
libjavascriptcoregtk-1.0-bin and libjavascriptcoregtk-3.0-bin, I guess
just one javascriptcoregtk package is enough?
