Back in November a wrote to this list that I was porting the
window-picker-applet to GTK+3 so it can be used in the fallback mode of
gnome 3.

It took me a little longer to finish this but in the last days I have
finished porting enough code that it now works on oneiric with GTK+3.
I'm still working on getting rid of the remaining deprecated functions
but if any one wants to take a look you can just clone the git
repository on Github. I included a readme file so it should not be
difficult to compile and install it:


Let me know you someone finds this useful.

All the best
