Well, maybe that GTK3-programs suck? They feel very slow imho and don't fit
well into a world where GTK2 is still the least-painful way to go.

Looking at it in relativity to Wayland: Let's be honest; who's already
using Wayland today? Weston is a bloated POS and I've just begun work
on writing a dwm wayland-compositor, which is definitely not an easy
I am sure the few people already using Wayland will be smart enough to
just pull in the external GTK3-patch and be fine.

But please: Don't force this crap on everyone else, too!

Best regards
