You could use that point to recommend forking all of our dependencies,
for example the latest GLib/GObject/GModule/GIO is >= 2.30 too, the
latest GTK+ is 3.12 and requires GLib >= 2.39, the latest Pango requires
GLib >= 2.32. We can't fork everything :)
IMO, it'd be better just to depend on an older version than the latest
like we do for everything else, and maybe open a bug report for the
Debian package if it wrongly makes libpeas depend on libpeas-gtk instead
of the other way around.
If I understand correctly, libpeas backends are pluggable/modules that
do not need to be hardcoded into core either, so there's no too much
incentive to keep our own fork/modified copy for that purpose, IMO.
