Hmm, yeah, I posted my commentary to the release team / usability list
(didn't even realise usability was there, oops).

After discussion with d-d-l and the hackers involved, then I think Jamin
(as Fifth Toe dude) and the release team.

demonstration of the best GNOME applications around, so everything
involved should make an attempt to come up to GNOME standards. (Puts
GIMP in an odd position though...)

I'd say definitely side with 2.x apps only for subsequent releases. :-)
