I know Sun ARC-type folks frown on versioning in filenames and
in environment names.  Why can't we add a versioning property to
the RC file instead, which would work OK for GTK+-2.X (since it 
could ignore unversioned RC files versioned < 2.0 or unversioned) and
us some flexibility going forward... ?
