Yes, there is. And it is there for a very good reason (bug #436242).

Feisty is not going to include GIMP 2.4 anyway. If we manage to release
soon, then 2.4 will be in the next Ubuntu release though. And that
release is likely going to use GTK+ 2.12 anyway.
It took us long enough to get 2.4 done. I don't worry too much about
adoption at this point. Sooner or later everyone will update.
