Oh, the other point is that the GTK+ team are, this time, very confident
that they will stick to their schedule. They were definitely not for
2.6. The advantage of testing GNOME with the GTK+ version that will be
released simultaneously with it means that the combination that is
blatantly going to be seen in the wild will be tested, rather than not
testing GTK+ at all.
This is basically Owen's second point from here:
and it's very convincing. Don't forget it.
