I've had to make some drastic changes. My intention was for overlay-scrollbar-bzr to be a metapackage that would install both (most users who'd want them probably want both, because few users have a purely gtk3 software suite), but that isn't going to work out.

If you only want the gtk3 version, you should install only liboverlay-scrollbar-gtk3. It will pull in overlay-scrollbar-bzr, which is now a config package (both liboverlay-scrollbar-gtk{2,3} depend on it, while it depends on neither).

There's a serious, upstream issue with the gtk3 scrollbars you should know about:
https://bugs.launchpad.net/overlay-scrollbar/+bug/1167079

Seems like a fix is possible, and I'll look into it myself, but it could take a while. Canonical gave up without trying (seems like their plan was to abandon the scrollbars all along, most bugs were fixed by hardcoded blacklisting of buggy programs).

This is a split package; let me look into it.

Can you make liboverlay-scrollbar-gtk2 an OPTIONAL dependency for overlay-scrollbar-bzr?

It's not strictly required (only for gtk2-apps, hence, optional), and TBH, I'd rather not run a patched GTK2 (due to maintenance burden).

This is missing makedepends=bzr.
