Major version numbers of Gtk have always been completely incompatible.

However, from what I understand, those members marked in the gtk headers 
with GSEAL will be inaccessible in Gtk+ 3.x
So when the appropriate, we can try to pre-empt the 2->3 transition by 
#defining GSEAL to "; //" or some such ...

But for now, I think it's best not to require later versions unless there
is good reason.
