I imagine building newer GTK/GLib from source with only old dependencies 
would be a pain in the arse, having to grab and build all the newer 
dependencies too. It's also a pain for most users to install and manage 
multiple versions of libraries. Geany is actually very easy to build as 
it only requires Gtk/GLib.

Note: I have never built GTK/GLib from source.
