I have 2 outstanding gtk+ properties patches (for GtkMessageDialog and
various TreeView pieces). Not applying them would be a major
inconvenience which would slow development of gtkmm and waste our time.

Despite your assurances, I believe that it will be more difficult to get
these patches applied after a total freeze than before, simply because
gtk+ 2 will have more users then.
