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 One thing is removing out-of-date applications, another is to remove a library which may well be used by users to compile and link their local applications.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.
