Okay, with DIRNAMES patterns and "posttrans" trigger flag,
you can implement something like "posttrans filetriggers" on
behalf of specfile/rpmdb.

There are still issues.

%triggerin --posttrans -- /usr/share/icons/hicolor/*/*/
gtk-update-icon-cache /usr/share/icons/hicolor

This trigger can be triggered/folded/called either by dirname or by
glob pattern itself.  Since there is no way to pass the matching
dirname, which is limitation by itself, the only sane possibility
is that DIRNAMES triggers are triggered/folded/called by glob patterns.

%triggerin --posttrans -- /usr/share/icons/hicolor/*/*/
gtk-update-icon-cache /usr/share/icons/hicolor
%triggerun --posttrans -- /usr/share/icons/hicolor/*/*/
gtk-update-icon-cache /usr/share/icons/hicolor

How do you pass "$2" argument to these triggers?  What is "$2"?  If you
pass different "$2" for in/un, you can no longer fold basically the same
in/un triggers (and they run twice).  Or you do not pass "$2" at all.
Anway, doing just something about "$2" is weired.

And this is still not enough.

3) There's a dozen of icon themes, and their gtk2 icon cache is specific
to gtk2.  The above triggers imply that I process "hicolor" theme
specially.  However, I do not.  I want gtk2 to update caches for all its
themes as needed.

Here is gtk-icon-cache.filtrigger for gtk2 pacakge as (presumably)
implemented for ALT Linux:

egrep -o '^/usr/share/icons/[^/]+/' |sort -u |
# doing /usr/share/icons/*/ directories
while read -r dir; do
	if [ -f "$dir"/index.theme ]; then
		# something changed for this theme
		gtk-update-icon-cache "$dir"
	elif [ -f "$dir"/icon-theme.cache ]; then
		# theme was removed, nuke stale cache
		rm -f "$dir"/icon-theme.cache
		rmdir --ignore-fail-on-non-empty "$dir"

Now you cannot implement this with glob-dirname triggers, because
you need to know the name of icon theme dir.

%triggerin -- /usr/share/icons/*/*/*/
# cannot deduce /usr/share/icons/hicolor/ prefix
