Something which might be even more useful is the ability, for a future
gtk3 panel, to run gtk2 (external) plugins. Because plugins are already
have issues keeping up (there are still a lot of them still building
against libxfcegui4) so I'm pretty sure a number of them won't ever be
ported to gtk3 :)

Besides that, I'm not really in a hurry for migrating to a gtk3 Xfce in
Debian. But what puzzles me is what will be the state of Gtk2 when 4.12
is out and when we release Wheezy+1 (I'm pretty confident libgtk2 will
still be present in Debian for a few years, but at one point it won't be
maintained much).
