In the beginning so-called gtk3-client tree will be actually gtk2-client
prepared to switch to gtk3. Difference to gtk2-client itself would be that
gtk2-client is more backward compatible (all the way to 2.12.0).
I also anticipate that you would get your patches almost certainly right just
by testing gtk2-client when making similar changes to both clients. Someone
else (I?) can then make final gtk3-testing.

All the related packages adhere very well to building standards, so this is
not scary at all (minor disclaimer: I'm the guy developing crosser ( ) so my view of what is 'trivial' to build might
be a bit distorted). I can write some sort of quick instructions, maybe in
form of shell script.
