2.10 has lots of user nicities, but from a dev standpoint.

Mousepad can benefit from:
 * Printing support
 * Recent files support
 * Draggable tabs in GtkNotebook
 * Improvements to GtkTextBuffer
 * Upgrading GDK Keysyms

Off the top of my head (and very likely wrong as I'm not familiar with
the internals of other apps):
 * Orage could use the new GtkStatusIcon
 * Terminal could (potentially) use the draggable GtkNotebook
 * The desktop menu might make use of GtkRecentManager as well, and
appease some users.
 * Xfwm might use the improved Keysyms
 * Thunar could use improved Treeview

So my life would certainly be easier, but don't let just that make the decision.


<@kazin> why does php have 'echo' and 'print'?  Do they do different things?
