Well then I'd say we go with the following:

Gtk 2.20 (in squeeze, released in may 2010, will be ~2 years old when
4.10 hits the streets)
Glib 2.24 (same as above)
Cairo 1.6 (Gtk 2.20 dep)
Wnck 2.30, doesn't matter only translation updates since 2.22 (2.30 is
releases at same time as Gtk 2.20 and in squeeze).
Dbus-glib 0.84 (Glib 2.26 has GDBus tho, but that's too new. 0.84 is
released in same period as Gtk 2.20, squeeze has 0.88, quite a bunch
of bugfixes since 0.72 which was the 4.8 dep).

Anyone against this?
