	I have to say that I'm in greatly in favour of the last option.
Starting 2.5 development knowing for a fact that we're going to get the
file selector sorted for 2.6, and that's its going to have seen a lot of
developer/user testing by the time GTK 2.4 and GNOME 2.6 released is
really the best option, IMHO.

	We know pretty much for certain it will in GNOME 2.6. That's good
enough for me, at least. I'd hate to see a mess being made out of it or
the release itself, just for the sake of having it released with GNOME 6
months earlier.

Good Luck,
