Since nobody seems opposed to breaking the API compat, I'm going to plan
on making this happen for the Gnome 2.24 release cycle.  I will move
gnomeprint* and panelapplet to gnome-desktop-sharp into their own
assemblies with conditional builds and independent .pc files to obtain

That should get gtk-sharp and gnome-sharp completely free of unstable
libraries, so this should be our last compat break until gtk+ and gnome
start breaking platform compat in a few years.
