There are several useful science programs that still make use of GTK+
1.2, one is a very useful chemistry program, GAMGI, which is in the
new queue and on its way into unstable. The other is coot, a
widespread application for macromolecular crystallography.
Please don't remove GTK+ 1.2. There are still upstream authors,
especially in science who use GTK+ 1.2 and who don't bother revising
their programs from the wisdom: if it ain't broke don't fix it.
