Well, it's the answer I'm going to give.

Trying to preserve the ability to compile against GTK+-2.4 then link
against GTK+-2.2 is basically a losing battle. E.g., this would  make
impossible the change I suggested recently for g_return_if_fail() that
saves 4% code size for GTK+.

And of course, it also breaks if symbol versioning is used in GTK+
or any underlying library.
