Can't it go into extras in the mean time as extras isn't suppose to be
second class but rather 'extras' that way all the GNOME 1.x stuff
listed above can go with it. Those that need it can then just do an
'up2date -i gnucash' and get all the deps that go with it.

It seems its easier to get rid of all the GNOME 1 stuff than the
gtk/glib 1 stuff as its used by the likes of imlib and a few others.

I seem to remember that sylpheed was also mentioned a while a go as
part of the move to extras.
