right, because of this, I think 2.32 should just be 2.30 + some
backported changes. If we release 2.32 with some modules using
gsettings/gtk3/etc and others not using it, we end up having 2.32 =
gnome 3 beta, don't we?

As for control-center and gnome-settings-daemon, we are going to just
backport some fixes and release that as 2.32
