List of remaining libraries for C++ transition

This is just a rundown of what little is left, and why.

db3 -- C++ bindings to be removed (not sure why it's not done yet)
inti-gl -- to be removed
inti-sourceview -- to be removed
libinti-gconf1.0 -- to be removed
libinti1.0 -- to be removed
libpanelappletmm2.6 -- *** needs new upload or removal
libs11n -- to be removed
libsdl-sge -- just needs binNMU, which is in progress
log4cpp -- *** new maintainer needs sponsor
nurbs++ -- *** needs new upload or removal, old FTBFS with gcc-3.4 and gcc-4.0
postgis -- Steve Langasek suggested removal
sp-gxmlcpp -- *** needs new upload or removal
wfnetobjs -- *** needs new upload, has reverse depends (wflogs)
xdb -- *** needs new upload, has reverse depends (oleo)

In addition, the following library-building packages, which
produce libraries with reverse dependencies, have
old, untransitioned versions for some architectures:

ivtools: arm, hppa, m68k, mips, mipsel, s390, sparc
kdebindings: m68k
kdemultimedia: m68k
mozart: m68k, s390
pdfkit.framework: m68k

This is really a pretty good result.  Which makes it sad that
we're going to have to build a new libstdc++, break lots of
allocator users, and retransition a bunch of stuff.  :-P
I guess a plan, as yet undevised, will be needed for that.  Maybe
'c2a' libraries.  :-P
