Don't give up hope quite yet.

This is an XMMS plugin.

I use this on both my Debian and Gentoo machines (ironic, that.)
I can probably port this to GTK2 in about a day. I'll keep people posted. :)

This is an XMMS plugin which has been ported to Audacious, and as such
works fine with GTK2.

This is a Qt app, and it has been mostly replaced with SuperKaramba AFAIK.

mplayer has been ported to GTK2 and most recent versions will work
fine under GTK2.

I'm working on these already out of personal interest. I'll submit some
bugs to debian as well as to gentoo when I am done porting PCSX to GTK2.

I'm pretty sure that these are already ported to GTK2.

Someone is already porting this aren't they?

Claws has been ported to GTK2 for some time and is well established.

Porting these is likely to be fairly trivial, as windowmaker dockapps
mostly use GDK which has not changed much, not GTK.

These are probably fairly trivial to port to GTK2.

There's at least 29 (I may have counted wrong) packages that can be
resolved in the near future anyway.
