Bob Fewell recently posted a patch to bugzilla for the bill/invoice 
importer (converting it from libglade to gtkbuilder, including some 
other fixes). Due to a lack of time this week I haven't looked at it 
yet, but perhaps you could check if it overlaps with your fixes and if 
necessary evaluate which patch is best applied first.

In general: if it fixes a bug that's also present in 2.4 it should be 
backported provided it's a fairly trivial patch. If it adds/improves 
features in the bi module only, I don't think it should be backported. I 
didn't closely follow the thread from the beginning, so I'm not sure 
what your patch would change.
