OK, here's how we can do this:

1. Lesstif is approved. It needs to incorporate my fixes (see BZ 203274)
and be rebuilt.
2. libGLw needs to be approved. I posted a fixed SRPM (see BZ 188974).
It needs to be committed and rebuilt into FE.
3. lesstif needs to be rebuilt one more time after libGLw is built.
Hooray for circular deps!
4. mesa without libGLw needs to be rebuilt in Core.
5. ddd and xpdf need to be moved to Fedora Extras, their BR changed from
openmotif-devel to lesstif-devel.
6. tetex-xdvi can pass --with-xdvi-x-toolkit=xaw to configure, and no
longer depend on motif. It needs to do this and be rebuilt in Core.
7. At this point, we can destroy openmotif from orbit (with our newly
repaired ORBITAL LASER).
8. cernlib, cmucl, geomview, gpsd, grace, Inventor, nedit, and xlockmore
(all maintainers CC'd) need to change their BR from openmotif-devel to
lesstif-devel. I tested all of these apps and they work correctly
against lesstif.
9. fbida is the only one in Fedora Core or Fedora Extras that doesn't
work with lesstif, because it needs an actual implementation for
XmeDropSink() (at a minimum, there may be more). Specifically, it is the
"ida" binary in this package that needs openmotif, so I altered the
fbida package to not create the -ida subpackage anymore:
It needs to be rebuilt and the fbida-ida package nuked (Note: I didn't
make the new package Obsolete/Provide fbida-ida...)

See? Less than 10 steps even? :)
