I didn't have time to dig up the actually commits and source involved,
but for an example of a program supporting both, see:
For an example a little more close to home, see Scintilla 2.29, which
AFAIK, supports all GTK+ versions between 2.8 and 3.x :)
IMO, it would just be good to even just get the "Preparation in GTK+
2.x" parts of the migration done in the very near future (from the
Migration Guide). There's nothing mind-blowing in there, mostly just
good GTK+/programming conventions.
That way when GTK+ 3 is more common, supporting it will be much easier,
probably only requiring a few #if sections and some tweaks to the build
system to detect the right majour version (ie. gtk+-3.0.pc over
gtk+-2.0.pc and so on).
