We didn't just arbitrarily choose to use Gtk-1.2 for GNUCash. The 
developers of GNUCash have not released a Gtk-2.0-compatible release. 
They plan a pre-release of a gtk2 version of GNUCash for December, but 
we probably won't have a gtk2 version in the ports tree until a stable 
release (i.e. not pre-release) is issued.

A 5-second look at http://www.gnucash.org would tell you almost 
everything above, plus more.
