I'm sure the actual packaging will take a day or so, but testing it all
and writing any migration scripts (hopefully none, the panel migrates
itself) would take longer.

Basically, yes.  The sooner the packages are prepared the better, for
two reasons:

1) I'm getting fed up of telling people to wait when people ask "when
will sid get g2.4??" :)
2) The sooner its packages, the sooner is can be tested, the sooner it
is stable.

Of course 2 can be executed at the same time as 2.2 enters testing, by
using experimental.

I'm lost regarding testing-proposed-updates: did you get permission to
upload gnome-terminal and gnome-control-center there?  If so, that
should mean core 2.2 is finally in testing, which means we can all start
playing with 2.4 now and stop this arguing. :)
