We are not likely going to move to Gtk# 3 any time soon.

We have evolved the plan over the years, but this is the current plan:

   - We are going to be refactoring Xamarin Studio along engine vs UI
   components, to allow us to build native UIs for each component (WPF on
   Windows, Cocoa on Mac, Gtk# on Linux).

   - We typically start with a Gtk# UI, because that one already works
   everywhere, so we start with this, and we then provide the per-platform UIs.

Replacing Gtk# 2 with 3 is not really a goal.  They change the API, and are
about to change it again with 4.

When we move everything over to this split UI system, we will take a look
at whether it is worth upgrading to newer versions of Gtk, but for now,
version 2 has lots of custom improvements for Mac and Windows that have not
yet been added to 3.
