I agree... also that means that most of the applications out there that
will be blessed by GNOME won't work on GNOME 3.0. See pidgin, gxine,
gnomebaker etc... that doesn't follow GNOMEGoals and would make them
broken for GNOME Releases.
Also not following GNOME Schedule means that will have many problems on
QA, Documentation and Translations.
