I played with rpm a little today to see what prevents gtk1 being removed. After
"rpm -e --test"'ing a whole lot of gtk1 and gnome1 gruft it basically comes down
to a handful of applications that are currently in FC (and a quite impressive
list of applications from external repos, but that's another story):

and, most important, gnucash.

There are some libraries I had to remove of which I am not sure whether there
are gtk2 replacements (and what these things are good for, anyway):


Please note that the above list just represents what currently is installed on
my machine.
