I think if we are going to do that, some form of compatibility test on startup with a little message 
box saying (Your GTK version is x.x and the minimum we require is y.y, please upgrade to use this 
software) is a good idea. Firefox did this at one point and I found it much more informative than it 
simply refusing to run or bombing out.

Even if it were implemented as a unit you inserted in the beginning of your uses clause and 
therefore optional, I _think_ it'd be a good idea. (I have been wrong before though)
