I agree, the Gtk2 libraries will be around and installed as default by all the distros for a very long time.

    Gtk2 is probably immortal, but Gnome2 components definitely aren't. Gnome2::VFS is already being removed from Linux distros, and presumably it's only a matter of type before Gnome2::Wnck and Gnome2::Canvas share the same fate. Hence the need to upgrade.
