Dan really went out of his way to handle the api breakage as well as
possible. He had patches for all affected gnome packages before even
doing the 2.3.0 release, and he has only made the release after the
Gnome release team strongly encouraged him to get libsoup 2.4 into
Gnome 2.22. 

He has also provided a patch for libtranslate by now, and I'm sure he
will be happy to help other package maintainers that are affected
by this.
