I'd be pleasently surprised if versioning could fix the gtk/glib/gnome
problems, but I think it's role is more to deal with minor corrective
drift that whole scale mutually incompatible changes. I mean if gtk1.1 and
gtk1.0 are not even source compatible it is crazy to think symbol
versioning will do anything to help them.
