Natanael, the roadmap (http://wiki.xfce.org/releng/4.10/roadmap) is 
pretty clear about porting to Gtk3 after 4.10.

Personally, I'd rather polish the existing (Gtk2) code rather than 
release a version that has been hurriedly ported to Gtk3. LTS is not 
about getting latest and greatest features.

I'd go for porting only if it was absolutely necessary - that is, if 
hard dependencies were incompatible with Gtk3 (not just unsupported).

I'm all for releasing something good in March and making Gtk3 the main 
(the only?) feature of a 4.12 release.
