FYI I also made the following changes so that all packages using
GSettings or providing GIO modules don’t have to depend on

  * Put gio-querymodules and glib-compile-schemas in a private, 
    versioned directory in libglib2.0-0 to avoid a dependency loop.
  * Move back the triggers to libglib2.0-0.
  * Add a purge of the necessary files in the postinst.
  * Stop recommending libglib2.0-bin since the necessary stuff is in 
    libglib2.0-0 now.
  * Add symlinks to keep the binaries at their place in libglib2.0-bin.

Thanks again for doing most of the job.
