Of course this will work. I would vote for having old Gtk defaults also in Gtk2 and would add the corresponding changes. Because this is a more or less basic design issue, I want to ask here, if that's Ok before starting to work on it.

First, anything to make porting gtk apps to gtk2 easier would be a big help.

One way to implement the "old" defaults might be to allow the user to call a method or set a flag of some sort to enable the old defaults. Of course, if everyone wants the old defaults then this is not necessary.
