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.
