AFAICK, it only depends on gtk+ (latest CVS depends on gtk+-2.1.0
unstable though)

I asked Havoc why the package was considered unstable. He said because
the API was subject to change. It doesn't mean the code itself is

I have no problem adding a new dependency on libwnck *if* this can help
moving forward and if we can use the time to think about our own

Using libwnck gives us instantly a working taskbar and a working pager,
out of the box.
