Can we, therefore, just say that unless maintainers remove the package
themselves after the Lenny release, all reverse dependencies of gtk1.2
and gtk1.2 itself will be removed from Debian during the month before
the expected announcement of the Squeeze toolchain freeze? i.e. at the
earliest stage of the Squeeze release process. (No delays would be
accepted for this removal either, it would be unavoidable and no
complaints would be entertained, no matter what.) I'm happy to help get
rid of gtk1.2.
