comment Are there distros that still ship GTK+ 1?
sure, fortunately we don't have many examples. In theory, project activity could be part of the reason why it's hard to migrate. Yes, well-managed and versioned projects with healthy morale do not tend to have this problem, but I have seen projects where the above (rather ironic) remark would describe the reason quite accurately. (Other factors such as major changes in the backend being seen as controversial by part of the contributing community may have influence.)

comment Are there distros that still ship GTK+ 1?
I can't imagine why an app that was actively worked on wouldn't have migrated by now. ...because it's actively worked on? (By old dogs that don't want to learn new tricks?)

comment find on a set of dirs that may not exist
Nice but I think I could do the python part in sh as well...however, the hard part is the find --- I need some filters there and xargs only puts args at the end of the line (as far as I know xargs--which is very little ;))
