Seems we got somewhat tangled here. I was replying to "I'm assuming that
when we start upstreaming stuff". I don't want to see stuff being
"upstreamed", I'd rather the work be done upstream in the first place.

3.6 is fine by me as well. But I'd like to see the GNOME code as soon as
it's written, whether in a github/gitorious tree, through a squashed
patch in bugzilla, or a branch in the upstream repo if you have access.
