libXaw should not be removed. It is one fundamental libs in X11, many
(older, however still useful) applications are based on.

Basis for many GL applications. Should be shipped in parallel to
libGL/Mesa/X11 and should be regarded integral part of X11.

Not just "yet another text editor". It's the only Wordstar compatible
ASCI-editor in Fedora (WordStar has dominated the editor market in the
late 1980/90's, generations of users have grown up with it.) Removing it
from FC means a severe loss of functionally to this generation of users.
