ITPs are meant to avoid duplicating efforts, yes... But you should not
consider this action as hostile - Ross didn't file an ITP, ok, but
Marc is advising Marco not to waste _his_ time duplicating Ross'
(unadvertised) work.

Marco is trying to start working on Debian, I don't think he _needs_
to package this specific gtk2 stuff. Marco: Just forget it, grab
another package. If possible, adopt an orphan package. Damog: This is
not CONSOL, people are not out to get you ;-)
