Yes, that's true. An unstable API will render a whole chapter of my
book useless, which is not quite a clever idea. I'm even considering to 
dump the discussion of pyGTK because of this. AFAIK GTK2 will be so much
better than GTK1.x that almost everyone who can will switch as soon as
possible. But for a discussion of (py)GTK2 there is too much change in
the API yet.
