And, BTW, Pawel and Peter, what's your vision on GTK+2 and GTK+3 branches? Do you plan to support both, or GTK+3 would become the new "HEAD" branch with GTK+2 going to trash?

I would opt for merging gtk3 branch to master and dropping gtk2 support in new releases. The only thing that stops me is that gtkspell and gtk3 do not work together. Peter has filed a bug report on gtkspell but it received little attention from gtkspell's developers' side:

On the other hand gedit3 _has_ spellchecking, though
$ ldd /usr/bin/gedit | grep spell
yields nothing.

Thanks for pointing that out--I hadn't tried gedit's spell checking!

Before GtkSpell, Balsa used a check-on-demand spell checker like gedit's "Check spelling" tool, and can still be configured --without-gtkspell to use it.  That builds and runs fine with gtk3 (although currently it does nothing...need to look into that :).  Gedit's "highlight misspelled words" tool is implemented using a fork of GtkSpell.  Balsa could of course do the same, but I'd _much_ rather avoid it!  I guess the gedit devs just got tired of waiting...
