Subject: gnome-1 && gtk-perl

As most of you are probably aware, the gnome team has decided to remove 
gnome-1 from the tree because it is a drain on their resources to support (my 
wording for it). While I can sympathize and understand the argument, we 
(perl) have more than a few modules/apps that rely on this gnome-1 support to 
function. A few Gentoo developers, such as spyderous, have offered to 
continue to support gnome-1 to help keep their apps alive, and have asked if 
we would like to be a part of that. Rather than arbitrarily say yes all on my 
lonesome (since we all know my hard core c/c++ skills are lacking), I'd like 
to ask your opinions. Just to give a brief sample, we're talking about 
packages like gtk-perl, glade-perl (which would be moved under gtk-perl per a 
pending bug, but I didn't see the point in pursuing that while gtk-perl was 
package.masked), bins, and the associated modules.
