I don't know anything as specific as you probably want to hear, sadly.
It's just that it raises up from time to time when users tell on what

Since we recently bumped the GTK requirements to 2.12 for the upcoming
release, do we need to discuss this already again?
Yeah, newer versions are cooler but is it necessary or just cooler?
