Well, as stated in at least the Tomboy bug above, we should be able to
work around this even if we are using gtk-sharp 2.12.  We can just
DllImport the new API ourselves.  F-Spot has a project on gitorious
(called gtk-sharp-beans, I think) where they maintain a few post-2.12
pieces of API that they use, so gtk-sharp being stuck on 2.12 is not
too big a hindrance for us.

So to be clear, that Tomboy bug does not block on updates to
gtk-sharp, and is targeted to be fixed by Tomboy developers before
GNOME 2.28.
