Let me be the first "clamoring" then...
With GTK# 3.0 we will finally get the 2.x improvements we never got 
because GTK# 2.0 was kept stuck at 2.12 APIs. Most notably GtkEntry 
additions [1], a GtkInfobar widget [2] and a GtkSpinner widget [3].
For 3.0 my interest goes to the new style contexts (primary toolbar, 
inline toolbars, joined buttons, etc.) symbolic icons and new widgets 
like GtkSwitch.
