I don't believe there are any issues.
Download the unstable book, watch the 'requires' and 'optional' and upgrade as 

OT! gtk-2.6.0 is out
I backed up my partition and replaced:
glib-2.4.7   > glib-2.6.0
pango-1.6.0  > pango-1.8.0
atk-1.8.0    > atk-1.9.0
gtk+-2.4.13  > gtk+-2.6.0

No problems yet, ymmv
I'll try a clean build of everything, real soon now!
