That is quite hard to say, but I believe it's quite OK to rely on
versions released at the same time, specially since we want to try and
keep these dependencies for a while. The versions proposed by Carlos all
look good to me, they will all be in Debian experimental by the time 2.0
hits experimental, and us developers can rely on our jhbuild so…
