GTK+ 3 has several new features that makes the life of us developers
easier. Also tablet support on windows will be improved.

Not unless we use the new features.

There is a major impact though: 3rd party plugins might break,
especially if they use widgets from libgimpwidgets. Hence we cannot do
the switch to gtk3 within the gimp 2.x series since we promise a certain
level of api stability within this series. If that weren't the case we'd
have switched to gtk+-3 long ago.
