"the GNOME team will most
likely stop supporting glib/gtk 1.x (and other GNOME 1.x stuff) in 11.3.
If anybody wants to step up and maintain them, we can make this happen:
we will create a devel project in the build service and move everything

I don't know when it happened (I don't think the OBS/osc allows to
know that), but it's now at openSUSE:Dropped.

It that same discussion XMMS replacements where proposed. Audacious
(GTK2) and QMMP (Qt) being the most populars.
