Yes gtk20 and gtk30 can live together. What you can't do is mixing gtk 2 
and gtk 3 widgets. So a application needs to be linked to only gtk2 or 
gtk3 not both. The application will tell you in console if that happens.

We got webkit-gtk3 in MC, if you want to try that. Personally I think we 
should wait a little bit before switching, or adding a option for it.
