.... and will still be removed if libgtk1.2 is finally removed. The
list of reverse dependencies make no difference - those depend on
libgtk1.2 and would need to either migrate or be removed.

Not sponsoring the upload was a chance to further the goal of removing

always join the calls for packages depending on gtkglarea to migrate to
libgtkgl2.0 and thereby support the removal of gtk1.2 and glib1.
