[Pkg-fonts-devel] pango-graphite and silgraphite2.0 (Graphite 1 src package) removal

pango-graphite is an old project that I worked on to allow gtk2 apps to use Graphite 1.
Graphite 1 (silgraphite2.0) has been replaced upstream by Graphite 2 (graphite2)

pango-graphite is RC buggy and I have no interest in updating it to Graphite 2 as Graphite 2 
can be used by harfbuzz-ng (provided that the support has been compiled, which looks like it 
has, but I haven't tried it).

A number of Graphite enabled font packages "Suggest:" pango-graphite.

Would anyone object if I request removal of both pango-graphite and silgraphite2.0?
