python-plplot does not build with g++-3.2[0] (which gets dragged in as
Build-Dependancy by python2.2-dev[1]), and these are just the python
bindings for plplot. 

I guess you can only remove source packages, so removing plplot just
because its python-bindings are uninstallable at the moment seems a bit
too rude if you ask me.

As much as I applaud your step to threaten removal in order to finish
the python-transition, I question that generally a package being
uninstallable in unstable justifies its removal, especially if there are
no reverse-depends on it.
