Your mission, should you decide to accept it, is to do this:

- Get the latest GTK+ from svn trunk.

- Go through each of the unreviewed patches and classify them

        - obsolete patch which does not apply "as-is" to the sources
          (you can use "patch --dry-run" to test this easily without
          screwing up your source tree)
        - big patch which needs detailed testing/review
        - small patch which could be tested/reviewed in a few minutes

29 patches were categorized. More to go...

Is there a way to check programatically (scripts/patch-command/etc)
that if a patch is applicable to be applied with p0 or p1?

If so, then this process of categorizing patches can be automated i suppose.

...any comments, suggestions :)
