I believe I mentioned that to you before. There's of course runtime gtk
version checks to use GtkOptionMenu if it's lower than 2.4 (that
introduced the powerful GtkComboBox API).
I have currently pImplifying all that in my plate, to make the selection
between GtkOptionMenu and GtkComboBox implementation clean.

2.8 will one day happen, would be good to have it there regardless.
Not sure if it can be considered for 2.6 or not.
