I guess a fair compromise would be to aim for using gtk 2.8 for 2.12,
but not using any new functionality in gtk 2.8. That way if it turns out
2.8 is not stable enough we can roll back to 2.6 before release. On the
other side it is stable enough then we ensure its gets widely
distributed and tested so we can start taking advantage of it for 2.14.
