For the record, Seb has pointed out that he doesn't want to test it
until release-team have committed to it for 2.12, for entirely
reasonable reasons on his part. I'm more than happy to work with the
gtk folks (and anyone else) to push testing heavily and deal with the
results, FWIW, but that's Hard Work and our recent track record in
pushing it without builds is poor.
