GTK 2.9 is GNOME 2.16 material, lot of packages Depends on GTK and
making a "start of unstable cycle version" the default is not a good

First tarball are due during may (ie: 2.9.n), not 2.10

I disagree, they is a lot of changes and new features for 2.10 and "a
random 2.9 snapshot" is not something we are wanting to ship with a
stable Debian
