These two provide champlain-0.12 and clutter-gtk-1.0, both for gtk3,
while claws-mail (as a gtk2-based app) requires the last versions which
were for gtk2.  In theory (and with some patches), these two versions
could be made parallel-installable (e.g. as clutter-gtk010 and
libchamplain08), but AFAIK the old versions are no longer maintained.
