I am sorry, but what you describe is reality for most plug-in authors. Did
plug-in developers develop for gtk-1.0 and gimp-1.0 a year ago?

It's more of a social problem: do we *trust* the gtk development model to
be stable most of the time? I did trust the gimp developers that they want
working code as well, and it worked fine. If gtk+ is as chaotic as you
think it is, it is evry bad and gimp shouldn't use the HEAD revision.
