My understanding is that this version requirements comes from the
"global.tags" file which has an impressive amount of references to the
Gtk symbols and macros.
It seems to me this file is compiled upstream from whatever Gtk (and
other) sources upstream is using; perhaps you can build these at build
time by build-deping on libgtk2.0-dev and friends and point geany at
the headers instead? It certainly would avoid the risk of upstream
using a more recent Gtk than us.
Or perhaps users can build their own tags?
