I think it's a great idea but I think it would be nice to have some
TODO list and the factibility(?) of each point.

AFAIK it was planned to have working
Merge keyring stuff
Stop doing blockong IO
Merge privacy rewrite (it's it complete?)

I would like to get smiley themes and adium themes merged as theme loader

On gobjectifications: What about release 2.7.0 and then feature freeze
for some weeks so it gobjectification people can get a non-moving
target and get it done, then start 3.0.0 movement over gobjectificated

Do you have some expected time to get 3.0.0 done?
