How exactly have you been testing Gnome with Gtk 2.7.3 for more than six
days, I would love to know what kind of time machine you have.

Am talking about the time-line here:

You might want to familiarize yourself with the dates.

The only formal communication coming out of the release team came out
too late, no matter how much consensus you think you reached with the
handful of people who were on the thread, you are past your deadline.

In June 8th the issue was first brought up, in a question asked by
Frederic.  I do not see any consensus being reached on that thread.

Then the second thread started this Monday (where a handful of people
voted "yes"), so it is hardly an issue that was decided "months ago".

I am not making any statements about the competence of Gtk+ developers,
so do not put words in my mouth.   

I consider this plain risk management.  Specially considering:

	* There is little time to do any changes in software to 
	  take advantage of it (If we are going to respect the
	  timelines that the release team is putting out).

	* There is little benefit from using Gtk 2.8 in Gnome 2.12 
	  at a fairly high risk price.

	* Those who want Cairo in their apps can use it today
