Thanks Harold,

That looks to me like we could go to 2.18 without inflicting too much pain.
And that would allow the gtkinfobars.  Since we have just done a release,
now would be the time to do it.

So Colomban, I officially propose that we move the minumum GTK version to
2.18 as soon as the windows builder is moved to 2.24.

But then you clearly are not in the corporate world, every change costs
money, so only do it if you ****have**** to, are you really sure you have
to, well you only have half the budget anyway.

But supporting an old version of GTK doesn't really stop us innovating, in
most cases we just have to have some #ifdefs.
