That would need to be taken up with the ftpmasters and the maintainer.
Unlike other gnome*mm libraries that have been removed from unstable
recently, libbonobouimm1.3 and libbonobomm1.3 are not obsolete -- the
bindings may be useful to some people even if they aren't currently used by
any packages we ship.

That bug is filed against a version of gtkglextmm that's only present in
unstable, and is not by itself grounds for removing the package from
testing.  gtkglextmm will be removed from testing if necessary to let the
other packages in, but we're not there yet.

No, it doesn't; this is a new package, not present in testing today and
therefore irrelevant to the hint.

Added, though I don't know it technically needs to be; britney might have
picked it up on its own, but it doesn't hurt to save a few cycles there if
gtkmm2.0 is going to stay installable.

Also added.

Again, will be done when we're closer to having a viable hint.  (These
packages are commented in http://ftp-master.debian.org/testing/hints/vorlon,

Ok, noted.
