Well, Ubuntu wants to ship GNOME Shell in Maverick already, so they
are going to need some introspection, actually something newer than
the last release, by what I read in #introspection.

Also, Ubuntu didn't aimed for Gtk 3.x for Maverick because of time
constraints but it's quite probably they will for Maverick+1 and there
won't be static bindings for Gtk 3.x.

Of course, this is all speculation.
