Yes, thank you!

I also had doubts when I merged it, but I remembered that right after landing this in trunk the perf bot stopped crashing, and I also considered this harmless enough to merge it, just in case it fixed anything and assuming it didn't break anything. And I was wrong, but again, I would do it again. It's not that I merged this without even thinking about it, I did, and I ran the tests, but unfortunately it broke a single website.

Well, if being able to render forms with GTK+ 2.20 doesn't benefit the users...

Security fixes, no, those are high priority for me. That would work I had time to make stable releases every 2 or 3 weeks, but that's not the case, so security fixes always go in.

Exactly because we released 2.10 claiming a feature that doesn't work, we should definitely fix it.

I guess MIPS and OSX users won't agree with you here either.
