There are a couple of places in the GTK frontend where i check for GTK
version, and this is because i once used to compile it against GTK
2.8/2.9 while 2.0.9 was used in the d-i.
Now that d-i has switched to 2.8.x, there would be no longer need for
version check: should i remove the version checks so that compiling the
GTK frontend against old GTKDFB 2.0.9 will simply fail?

I talked to Davide on IRC yesterday and he told me that 2 of the RC issues [1] are fixed in new 2.10.x libs but may be hard to backport to 2.8.x. As long as we do not have definite confirmation from Gnome/GTK team that they will go with 2.10.x for Etch and these issues are not fixed in 2.8.x, I'd like to keep 2.0.9 open as an option [2].

[1] is solved in GTK+ 2.10.x, and 2.0.9 requires patches to work with DFB post 0.9.22 (but cairo is not needed with GTK+ < 2.8.0).. but ok, let's maintain compatibility with old GTK 2.0.9: code cleanup will wait!



[1] I'm talking about the blue lines and the disappearing selected line in
    selection lists.
[2] Although that may be difficult with cairo using newer directfb...
