I don't see any way around discussing this with the GTK+ team before
taking any decisions. If you think this is a blocker for 2.24, then
having it reverted on September 23 should still be good for a Gnome
release on September 24.
Ultimatively, it comes down to the question if 'blocker' makes any
sense if strict adherence to the schedule is the overarching concern.
