Isn't it required for GNOME 2.12?  I think we should be using that as
our base platform.  Supporting older versions is nice, but I'm not sure
we have the resources to both develop new features using the latest
libraries and maintain backwards compatibility.  Given that, I'd rather
we have kickass new stuff for GNOME 2.12 and Rhythmbox 0.10 and people
on older releases just use 0.8.  

If I'm wrong and someone can step up to do the work for the requisite
#ifdefs or whatever to run on older releases, that's great (as long as
it's not *too* much violence to the codebase).  But we shouldn't hold
back patches for 0.9/0.10 until then.

The other angle is that we get 0.10 released with all the new features,
then maybe people will appear to make it work on older releases.

I think there is some past disagreement here (although I couldn't find
it searching my mailbox).  Just my 2Â.
