wm/marco should work fine with Zenity 3.x, it's integrated that way
elsewhere. If that's the only remaining concern, I think the newer
Zenity version should just replace what we have now. If someone really
wants the older x11/gdm and needs the older Zenity, I'd prefer that the
older one is renamed zenity2 (along with renaming the older gdm, to
denote that is crufty software). I haven't tested the newer Zenity in
wip with Marco, but I could try it.
