Personnaly I'd rather see us move to Qt instead of Gtk3 when that
decision has to be made.  My reasoning is that I think the Gtk
developers have lost sight of their target audience, and as a result
keep removing features that are vital.  It's too much of a loose
firehose, and IMHO shouldn't be supported anymore.  Indeed, for my next
desktop re-install I plan to move away from a Gnome desktop and over to

Note that this has nothing to do with the 2.6 release, but it's
something we should think about when contemplating a move to gtk3.
