Unknown.. but I expect it will be ported eventually. GTK 3.0 will be a
problem for both the gEDA and PCB code bases, but given our adoption
rate of new versions of things.. I don't expect it will be a pressing
concern for some years yet.

We'll have to have caught up by the time distros stop shipping support
for GTK2.0 though.
