swami(svn) now use gtk2, don't worry about this, it has a quite active
upstream. Retire gtk+ will encourage software developer to use new GTK2
toolkit and force package maitainers to update packages to the latest
version which don't use gtk+ anymore. An alternative choice is move gtk+ to
rpmfusion just like python 2.4.

For putty(svn), I can sure it works quite well without any patch in F12,
gentoo portage and debian sid now use svn putty.
