I think that would be a good idea, but more work for you :(  Try to
find a good balance, Dirk ;)

The advantage with 3.0.2 would be to install on debian squeeze, ubuntu
10.04 and the like (at least 2 archs, i386 and amd64).

Disadvantage is you'll need to build 2 more packages (at least) for
next debian stable (wheezy) and possibly ubuntu 12.4 or 12.10, as (at
least) the glib and gtk libraries differ?

There's room for that too, depending on how much entertainment you
want to get ;)  Debian has two other package repositories: unstable
(aka sid) and experimental.  Bleeding edge goes to experimental.
