Sorry, I disagree here for one simple reason. The purpose of
Image Viewer existance is not switching to new GUI toolkit version as
fast as it appears, but do something useful for people who use it.
So, the master branch should have version that the most poeple use
(to simplify regular development process). Since the most of Image
Viewer users are from Sugar deployemnts and use gtk2, gtk2 should be in
master until people will start switching to gtk3. The exception is if
Image Viewer will, somehow, handle gtk2/gtk3 at once (didn't look for
such possibility).

I've added you to http://git.sugarlabs.org/imageviewer.
Flavio Danesse: if you are also will take part in gtk3 porting, post you
nick on git.sl.o to add.
