Yay!  Time to start ripping out GTK1 code all over the place :).  That 
will be a huge project in and of itself.

Fine with me - I've never liked supporting GTK1 and, in fact, I write 
most new GUI features only for GTK2 anyway.  The only downside is that 
we put so much time into supporting both in the past.

FYI to everyone: Nasty #if statements such as #if (GTK_MAJOR_VERSION ==
2 && GTK_MINOR_VERSION >= 9) || GTK_MAJOR_VERSION > 2 can be replaced with
#if GTK_CHECK_VERSION(x,y,z) when needed to only compile that code for a 
minimum GTK version (such as when a feature was introduced in 2.4.0 or 
2.6.0).
