With my maintainers hat on, I would say go for it,
but what about gtk3? It was postponed to anytime after 4.10, will that
move to anytime after 4.12?
Some libs like libvte already stopped supporting gtk2 in newer
releases and probably more to follow, I think it will get hard to
support boths for another year (or 2).
So if releasing 4.10 in March leads to gtk3 port right after, I'm all for it :-D
