That sounds reasonable.  (Unless somebody takes the effort to make GLib
1.2[.x] and GTK+ 1.2[.x] to build as dynamically-linked libraries,
people aren't going to be able to build for OS X with GLib 1.2[.x]; I
don't think we support GLib 1.3[.x] on Win32, either, so this might just
be doable as "if GLib 1.x, don't offer those menu items".)
