By the time that GIMP 2.0 is release, GTK+ 2.4 will be released as
well. We might be able to be release a few days earlier, or it might
happen the other way around.

Distros will start shipping GNOME 2.6 shortly after it has been
released and the release schedule for GNOME 2.6 says March 22nd. This
date will have to be corrected due to the delayed GTK+-2.4 release but
I think we can expect a GNOME 2.6 release in early April.

Thus, we should face the fact that at least some distros will make
their GIMP 2.0 packages depend on GTK+-2.4 and ship with these patches
