Yes they do. :¬)

Good point.

OTOH, for them, AIUI, it's just a widget toolkit and a possible port
to Gtk3 might not be so traumatic. Maté OTOH is a whole huge
assortment of Gtk2 objects flying in close assembly and might (I say
might, I do not know enough to say for sure) be significantly harder.

Perberos (Maté originator & project lead) has mentioned the
possibility but seems to have discounted or abandoned it by now.
