Guys, version-voodoo doesn't matter. GNOME should not, to a great extent,
care what's going on in GTK+ release land.

With 2.0, we had a very hard dependency on the GTK+ development cycle (we
actually needed something stable to code to). With 2.2, we had a fairly
strong dependency on GTK+ 2.2 (for multihead support and fontconfig/Xft2).

We should attempt to avoid these dependencies -> if it means we lose out on
a new file selector for a couple of months, so be it. A new version of GTK+
is going to be backwards compatible anyway, so stable GNOME users will get
the GTK+-level benefits anyway.

We're unhandcuffing ourselves from the loveboat. :-)
