Sometimes we do, sometimes we don't. I bet you can find many cases of
"old unmaintained stuff" e.g. in our TeX codebase.
What I think is appropriate to address is old, unmaintained and *broken*
stuff. Are python wrappers for GTK+ 2.x _broken_?
If the real issue here is that GNOME team no longer find the package
relevant, then perhaps instead of removing pass over maintenance to
others who do?
