Is that your idea of a joke?  It's not funny.

I have not seen maintainer approval of any such change. Given how much
correctly working code it will break, I hope approval is not given.

If an application is not using GTK_RESPONSE_CANCEL for its Cancel buttons,
then the application is broken. If an application has not bound Escape
to get out of a mode, cancelling any action taken in that mode, then the
application is broken.

If a modeless window, such as all our correctly made instant-apply windows,
closes when Escape is pressed, then the code responsible for that window
is broken. GtkDialog is used to make such windows. Changing Gtk+ as you
propose will break all of them.
