AIUI, Sugar is not forced to switch to the new GNOME 3 API right now
to work on F15.  The v2 API will be available.

In other words -- people are mistakenly imagining a flag day; instead
there'll just be a new-vs-old API. The old API will be deprecated at
some point but that happens over a longer timeframe.

There's a good chance to flesh it all out at FUDCon -- I hope people
working on gobject introspection will be there.
