Xfce has nothing to do with Perl.

Depending on the latest glib would cut us from a large user base
(including myself). xfce has much longer cycle release, so when we are
discussing the next version of Xfce, we have to decide what is our
target base and stick to it.

If you want to depend on the latest gtk+/glib, feel free to use Gnome,
it's much more depending on more recent gtk+/glib.
