That last clause is a slight exaggeration, but yes, you cannot combine gtk2
and gtk3, ever, not in any process/program, on any platform. This is a
major weakness of GTK, and affects Ardour in profound ways. Note that it is
also true of Qt (e.g. you cannot mix Qt3 and Qt4 in the same process), so
it is not a unique problem of GTK.
