I can see several options here:

     * Introduce those API additions to upstream gtk+ 2.12.x and
       publish a 2.12.13 tarball

No, GTK+ 2.12 is a stable (in fact, even a dead) branch at this point,
that we are not going to open up for new API at this point. The idea
of stable branches in GTK+ is that you can rely on the fact that if it
built against 2.x.y, it will also build and work against 2.x.z with z
< y.

Nevermind that enterprise distros are unlikely to follow such an
unprecedented stability-breaking late release anyway...

That all depends on what is happening right now - are people using stock 2.12, or patching 2.12 to address the issues Hub addresses?
