Agreed, but the filechooser is still under development/testing.

I don't see a problem with this. As long as the distros maintain their
patches themselves. I don't really know how Mitch's patch works, but
may be it could be included with some #ifdef GTK2_4. This way, we could
release a gimp-2.0.1 with or without support for filechooser.
