One thing this brings to mind (and this one might be tricky),
glade-3 will survive alot  longer if we design it to be able to
generate glade files for more than one version of gtk+,
idealy without recompilation.

I'm no expert here but given that glade produces XML files
and will not generate code in the future this becomes a libglade
issue doesn't it? I mean, are there any changes in the glade XML
file format planned for the next release? I have not looked at the
spec in detail but will supporting gtk 2.6 require changes to the
XML format or are they just enhancements, in which case we
can extend the XML format to accept new XML elements?

Cause if the XML DTD doesn't change, then one can always
install one libglade for one version of GTK, and another libglade
for another, without compromising compatibility at the glade XML
level. Again, I haven't looked at the DTD in great detail yet.
