However, glademm also build-depends on libgnomemm-dev, which is uninstallable
due (indirectly) to the removal of libpng10-0. The plan according to
debian-gtk-gnome is to remove all the GNOME 1 packages. Most of them depend
on gdk-imlib1, which depends on libpng10 and has no replacement.
So at this point I think glademm and orbit2cpp should be kicked out of
etch, but libbonobo[ui]mm1.3 should be kicked out of unstable as well.
Shall I file a bug against ftp.debian.org? Is the standard practice to
file a bug per source package -- that seems like it will be a lot of bugs.
Cc:ing debian-gtk-gnome. It's probably desirable to request the removal
of all the GNOME 1 libraries which depend directly or indirectly on gdk-imlib1
*at once*, and such a request should come from debian-gtk-gnome regulars,
who are perhaps best equipped to make such a list.
