the guile-gtk 0.2x series will only support Gtk+1.2.x

Yep. I do love GNOME. I see GTK as a part of the complete GNOME
platform. However I do know that most of guile-gtk
does not want to have GNOME installed.

What I'm planning to do? In the future we will have 3 packages:
-guile-gobject: The basis for all bindings. It is a wrapper for 
glib and thus for the new gobject.

-guile-gtk2: Gtk+2 bindings for guile (maybe pango can come hear...)

-gnome-guile2: The complete GNOME platform bindings for guile.
It will contatin support for bonobo, corba, gtk+2, etc.

Following this scheme, you have to choose between guile-gtk2 or
gnome-guile2. If you chose the latter it will include the guile-gtk2

I think this is the way to go =)

Any suggestions. Hope this clarifies the situation =)
