I don't think we need to drop any packages, unless keeping that
package is actually making our life harder in a significant way. What
I think it's makes a lot of sense doing is -hiding- the applications
that are abandonware. Users that really want some low level tool using
GTK-1 already know the package name, and are likely very familiar with
the command line.
