There are several useful science programs that still make use of GTK+

AFAICT, gamgi is using GTK-2.0.
Yes you are right, gamgi uses GTK-2.0 as of March this year. I was
quoting from (volatile, apparently) memory.
However, I maintain my objection. One thing is removing out-of-date
applications, another is to remove a library which may well be used by
users to compile and link their local applications. Even though there
are no apps in Debian linking to GTK+ 1.2 the library should really
remain in the archives.
