Pardon? Why would you ever have a problem explaining why version numbers
of *different* packages *differ*?

You don't even have a problem of explaining why version numbers for single
files differ, even less so for different packages.

That GTK+ is the GIMP ToolKit is not at all of any concern, after all,
gimp is the minority of applications using it. GTK+ has evolved. IF you
want to tie the version numbers, better make it a single package.

You obviously haven't read my mail. Really, I don't see why you are so
pissed off... I don't need to look at the code to see that there are no
major changes, and certainly none of the changes planned for 2.0 for a
long time.

Well, if that would be all, then there would be no reason to upgrade for
users at all, as nothing has changed for them.
