Well I guess I'm thinking from two perspectives:

1. it will mean more testing for gnome, which is definitely good.
2. it could mean staying roughly in-sync with gnome which is not bad
3. if fc1 is gnome 2.4 and fc2 is gnome 2.4 then it's a good shot that
fc3 is gnome 2.8 - which is a bigger jump than gnome 2.4->2.6.

Also there is that whole 'things numbered 2.6' which is nice.
