I few questions:

* What are pango and atk, and why do we suddenly require them (if
indeed we do)?

* Are there compelling advantages to using CVS-GTK which outweigh
the cons of forcing developers and users to upgrade?  Is GTK 1.3
not backwardly compatible with the GTK 1.2 API?  My concern is
that with such a casual-user oriented application as GIMP we
can easily lose users by the wayside with each additional

* For those of us with pieces of the tree's core which diverge
somewhat from the trunk, how much of a no-brainer is converting
our code to GTK 1.3-isms?
