NO.  As I stated in my original message there are a collection of
assembly libraries that are "Policy" dlls.  These are intended to
redirect a 2.4 and a 2.6 Gtk# library request by an application to a 2.8
equivalent library.  As future versions of Gtk# (say 2.9 and 2.10) are
released, is a matter of supplying the additional "Policy" 2.4, 2.6,
2.8, etc. to ensure compatibility at runtime.

You really should have your testers try out the Gtk# Installers for .NET
that I linked to on my original reply, before giving up on it.
