What if it's a non-GNOME-core package that uses GNOME 1?
gnucash and gpredict, for example.

gpredict is still maintained upstream but the author has not migrated to
GNOME 2 yet. Of course if it were trivial or there was a good tutorial I
might be able to assist; however I don't know the GNOME/GTK API yet.

Is this package removal warranted, or simply aesthetically pleasing?
