My question was if GTK2 face is going to be still available at least at 
the source level. (I know it's possible, since FF has different faces 
for win, osx and gtk.) Or you're going to "migrate" gtk2 face to gtk3 
(and completely obfuscate any attempt to use the older one; the same 
thing as we've seen with gnome 2.x related applications)?
