Given that the OSes that Sugar is based on will take several years to
include that in their stable releases, and that GTK3 will be included
for the next ten or twenty years, as GTK 1, 2 are currently, can you
explain how that will help the Sugar system, given all the other work
that needs doing?

Also, I doubt that an activity ported to GTK4 will continue to run on
GTK3 hence not on all the systems that don't have GTK4 yet, as the
point of a major release is usually that its API is not compatible, so
I expect that work to break the activities one by one for all
practical purposes.
