Fair enough.

Generally GnuCash lags behind Gnome/Gtk by about 12-18 months, so if
Gtk-3.0 is set for 2010 we really don't need a gnucash release until
2011, which means we can start to worry about it after 2.4.   So, no
rush on it.

I know that David Hampton has done some work adding code checks to
test for deprecated functions, so we might be halfway there!
