A more socially-minded approach would be to work on the problem of
sharing a GTK+ runtime between all apps on a system. It's perhaps not
an easy problem, due different requirements in versions and specific
libraries, but it's a more long-term solution to the problem of GTK+'s
big runtime than for each app using GTK+ on Windows to build and
distribute their own incompatible versions.
