You cannot really work like that. You either depend on it or not. You

gtk 2.2 easily AFAIK.

So GNOME2.3 has to depend on gtk2.2 if we really know that gtk2.4 won't be a
candidate for GNOME2.4. But how can we be sure of that?
I think it's quite complex to predict whether gtk2.4 will be released in time
or not.

That is exactly the point. Since we can't predict the gtk 2.4 release date, we should be targetting gtk 2.2 while developing Gnome 2.4. If gtk 2.4 is out by the time Gnome 2.4 is ready we can include it with the release (because it will be backward compatible with 2.2, right?).

By targetting gtk 2.2, we don't have to care about gtk 2.4's release cycle. See how useful backward compatible releases can be?
