Haven't people tried GNOME 3 fallback-session/classic on Ubuntu or Debian ?
I've been running it since January.
That is GNOME3 which looks and feels like GNOME2. You can run it with effects or without.
It has been tuned by the people from Debian/Ubuntu-community and works just fine.

Just one thing: ALT-right-mouse-button was needed to get the menu instead of just right-mouse-button.
But would that be a reason to keep a port of GNOME2 going in Mint and Fedora instead of keeping GNOME3-fallback working if the changed aren't accepted into the GNOME-project ?

Bit sad that the GNOME developers didn't care to make it possible to parallel install GNOME3 with GNOME2, without doing a lot of work on renaming stuff. But hey.
