Definitely not going to happen.
A lot of API provided by GTK is defined at run time — properties,
signals, even the object types. This means we cannot provide a
compatibility layer like Qt does. Types would collide, properties
would behave differently, signals would not be emitted.
Additionally, a compatibility between GTK 2.x and 4.x is absolutely
out of the question; at most, backward compatibility would extend to
the latest stable release (GTK 3.22) not to the old stable release.
