Hi,

Currently the installed tests [1] of libraries are not parallel
installable.

For example the GTK+ tests are installed in:
.../installed-tests/gtk+/

When GTK+ 4 will be released, it would be nice to still run the
GTK+ 3
tests. Especially because GTK+ 3 will be advertised as more stable.
But
I guess this is true for any library (except when security holes
are not
fixed in old versions).

So for GTK+ 3, the tests should probably be installed in:
.../installed-tests/gtk+-3.0/

No?
I would suggest to leave out the + as we do in other filesystem
locations: /usr/share/gtk-3.0, /etc/gtk-3.0. Other than that, no
objections, seems like a good idea to me.

It's not a big deal, but I like the idea of matching the pkg-config
name (gtk+-3.0).
