I was just looking at this change myself.

As a gmime maintainer in debian, I'd love to see it happen, but i think
the right way to do that is to prune/reverse many of the versioned
translations in util/gmime-extra.h, so that we're using the "native"
gmime 3.0 API, rather than a mishmash of the 2.6 and 3.0 API.

And we should probably tear out all the #if (GMIME_MAJOR_VERSION < 3)
stanzas in the source as well.
