We're currently trying to track down some crashers we're seeing with
PerformQueuedUnrefs () in Gtk# 2.10.2 with TreeModelSort, so I wouldn't
recommend using the 2.10 series on Windows at this point.  Our
application is running fine with our 2.8 series of installers though.

We've never provided policy files for 2.4 since it seemed old enough to
not be necessary, but if you'd like, I'd be happy to add those in the
next version we release.

In the early Gtk# 2.10 transition, I accidentally forgot to ungac policy
dlls, but as of 2.10.1-1, you shouldn't be seeing any problems.  As
usual, if you have any specific issues with installers, please direct
them to me, and I'll help you out.

I really wouldn't recommend it at this point due to the bug that we're
seeing.  However, it may just be our application doing something
