[ide-dev] Respinning Mars.2 with GTK2 by default

Wayne, in Bug 492371 Comment 6 [1], has asked this:

> Should we maybe consider respinning the Mars-based packages with the GTK2 switch?

I want to make sure this question is seen by a larger audience than
just the current cc list of the bug.

My answer is Yes, consider and do it too! Asking users to try GTK2 is
simply the first thing that one has to ask any Linux user of Eclipse
if they report any UI related problem.

Eclipse Installer (Oomph) currently has GTK2 on in the Eclipse
installer, and many third party offering of Eclipse products also have
the magic --launcher.GTK_version in their ini file.
