Not strictly true, 2.2 is the latest version in the 2.0 ABI/API
There won't be further bugfix releases numbered 2.0.x as far as I
know. From here on out if you want fixes with the 2.0.x API/ABI you
have to upgrade to 2.2.x
There just aren't enough people hacking GTK to support the 2.0.x
Fixing libgnomeui should be a one-liner
(s/GTK_TYPE_WIDGET/GTK_TYPE_INVISIBLE/ or something in the right file).
