On that I would note that we should keep a ppa for the unstable serie 
packages, open to contributions. Most app writer do want to target users 
of stable users out there anyway and will probably not want to jump on 
using the latest apis added.

I've to say I'm not convinced we shouldn't update the libraries yet, 
they should be ok to track though they are also the elements the most 
likely to create issues for other people working on the distribution 
(think ftbfses introduced by gtk deprecations).

One element to think about also is how that would impact the GNOME remix 
if the plan there is not ship the latest GNOME...
