Unfortunately Gnome 2 is unmaintained and completely discontinued
upstream, and for the Debian Gnome maintainers to maintain the packages
and the code base it self would be a huge undertaking.

Otherwise it's probably best to just stick with Squeeze and install
backports. By the time the next stable Debian release hits the Gnome 3
fallback mode should be a lot better.
