I also think that branching earlier instead of not at all would be the
best way forward here. Continue developing stuff in branches and merge
when ready. Getting enough testing is the only worry I guess and that's
been handled for kill-bonobo already IIRC. Why not do the same for other
ports/development branches?

I'm not sure about this but I think most other projects have moved
towards goocanvas in later years (nautilus being the prominent one).

I also wonder how clutter fits into this picture?
