On the contrary, it’s gtk1.2 and imlib that britney won’t remove from
testing as long as they have reverse dependencies in testing (ie.,
britney won’t let a removal to leave uninstallables around).
So the options indeed are doing a mass-removal by hand, and then
packages that get fixed get back in once they depend on gtk2; or to
delay the mass-removal, and only perform it after a reasonable period in
which gtk1.2 reverse dependencies have had some time to get ported.
We’ll think about it.
