Just for information: MPlayer 1.0pre8, released today, was finally
ported to GTK2. Maybe it could possible to drop GTK1 entirely in the
near future, not only GNOME1.

Some of the OSS apps in the distro were already ported using
gtk1-compat-devel or can be replaced. However, there are a few
commercial apps some people might care about, like NeroLinux.

Naive question: Why would this symlink have to be handled by RPM? There
could be a README file documenting that system administrators can set
this symlink themselves after evacuating everything from /opt/gnome.

How was it handled in the past when the GNOME prefix changed from
/opt/gnome2 to /opt/gnome?
