I can understand your reasoning. If I did not use GTK-3, I would have
no desire to program for it either. However, the reality of the
situation is that there are users who do employ GTK-3 in other
applications. Obviously not all applications have switched to the newer
version of GTK, "claws-mail" being a prime example. The reality of the
situation is that many users are forced to maintain two version of GTK
to satisfy their needs. Eventually, GTK-2 will be EOL'd. However, that
day is not today nor in the immediate foreseeable future. Perhaps
"claws-mail" is simply going to wait for GTK-4 to be released, thereby
skipping over GTK-3 entirely. Maybe that is actually not such a bad

Thank you for your reply.
