We're not looking in the feature, we have to keep up a bit with the
latest features. We cannot depends on Gtk 2.4/2.6 for ages, Gtk is
evolving and so is Xfce. There were some rejections about depending on
2.10 for the core parts, well fine by me, but 2.8 shouldn't be a big

And it's not going to be hell for the installer, since we add cairo as
a new dependency and bump Gtk 2.6 to 2.8.
