But libgtk1.2-doc has everything that gtk+-docs has, except the ones in
libgtk1.2-doc are up to date!  Remember, I mentioned earlier that the
docs in gtk+-doc are from Oct 30, 1998, and it covers GTK 1.0 - not even
one of the minor levels, I believe it covers straight 1.0.  Now, again,
if there is someone who actually wants this in here because someone is
still programming GTK 1.0 and I haven't received messages from those
that have already sent me replies changing their original position, then
I'll send the bug against ftp.debian.org, otherwise I'll just orphan the
package... let's say I'll do whichever I'll end up doing by Friday. :)
