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.
