On the principle that "Release is a misnomer. Software is never released, it escapes." [1], it's probably time to release 2.5.0 so that we can at least start down that road. Shall we say feature freeze now, string freeze in July, 2.6 release 1 November?

Failing that, has anyone taken a shot at rewriting it with Cairo instead of libgnome? Note that I'm not proposing a Gtk3 migration for 2.6: We're doing that at Gramps, and MSWin is proving to be troublesome. In fact, it appears that no one is supporting Gtk3-MSWin at the moment.

Forgot to mention: Gtk3 was indeed not on the agenda for 2.6. 2.6 is 
only meant to be *ready* to be migrated. This means getting rid of all 
the deprecated gtk symbols. Other than the register this is done. So the 
register rewrite is actually important for this goal, whether we use the 
GtkTreeView approach or the libgnome->cairo route.
