We talked about it today on #debian-devel, and it turns out there is a
very serious problem that is fixed by symbol versioning in GTK+.

$ objdump -p /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/

Now load this plugin in an epiphany or firefox process built against
GTK3, and have fun.

The problem doesn’t happen with versioned symbols, since the plugin and
the browser don’t exchange widgets.

The Qt maintainer raised similar concerns with konqueror using
QGtkStyle, which uses GTK2 to draw widgets, with the totem browser
plugin built against GTK+ 3.
