Tim and I discussed adding

if version >= 2.0 


type stuff to .gtkrc at some point in the 2.x series. Which would
solve the problem for GTK+-3.0. But the only way that any RC file
parsing change would help the situation here would be to do something
like ignore RC files that don't have 

 rc_version 2.0

Which is clearly not an option at this point; I'm not going to break
things for everybody who has a ~/.gtkrc-2.0 or has written a GTK+-2.0
