Well, there is already several packages in extra that depends on gtk.
Unless we want to remove them all, we have no choice but to keep gtk
in extra. So putting back xmms in extra won't really affect the gtk
situation as it will just be another package depending on gtk.  I
don't see any problems in keeping gtk/glib in extra. FTR, I am
maintaining them and they are low-maintenance as you would expect.
