I am in favor of removing gtk1 programs if one can say "no one could rationally be using this". I know there are some things that are gtk1 only still around (e.g., guile-gtk, since guile-gnome isn't really a replacement), and I'm not now in favor of removing those (but ask me again in 3 years :-). I'm inclined now to remove gtk1 versions of programs when there are obvious replacements that everyone should have already moved to. I think that will get rid of about 90% of gtk1 packages, reducing maintenance burden while not causing problems.
