That doesn't make much sense to me. If you wanted API stability then you
could just stay with API-stable gtkmm 1.2. Nothing forces you to use
gtkmm 2. I can't see why the existence of gtkmm2 would make you want to
stop using gtkmm 1.2.

That's why we have clearly defined periods of API development and
stability, always with one generation of the API which is stable while
the other is in development. It's the best of both worlds.

I suspect you were really thinking "We feel like updating to a newer API
so let's choose which new API to use.". That suggests that you were
ready to do some work anyway.
