packages them).

Easily the best rationale I've seen yet. Other than the fact that software that uses
Glib or Gtk on Windows is going to (to quote upthread) "bring its dependencies with it".
Neverthless, the notion that "sure, XP is out there, but it isn't a target for installs or
development of new software" seems dead center to me.
