I'm inclined to drop guile 1.8 support completely for master. It's no longer 
supported by upstream and all of the distributions we care about have been 
shipping guile 2.0 for some time now. The last remaining blocker was our very 
own mingw based windows build. However we're in the process of migrating to 
mingw64 which does ship guile2 so I see no reason to keep supporting guile 

At the other end of the spectrum, I wonder whether gnucash would work with 
guile 2.2, the current stable guile version...

Gtk 3.10 is still our baseline indeed, because that's the most recent version 
we can easily install on our Travis test environment.

I have just pushed a commit that adjusts this for cmake as well.
