I don't intend to package GTK 2.9 right now, no. The new version change
its ABI version as described by the announcement mail:

* GtkFileChooser:
  - Communication with backends is now asynchronous to avoid
    blocking on filesystem operations. Due to the required interface
    changes, the GTK+ ABI version has been bumped to 2.10.0. Third-party
    filesystem backends have to be ported to the new interface, other
    modules, such as theme engines, input method modules or pixbuf
    have to be rebuilt so that they are installed in the right place
    for GTK+ to find them.

We have enough work with GNOME 2.14 at the moment and the "ported to the
new interface" part means it requires to go with libgnomeui 2.15 anyway

I'm not interested to upload a GTK 2.9 variant building only the .udebs
to unstable neither
