I have another example (not in our repos): http://surf.sourceforge.net/
requires gtk1 and that won't change. I'd prefer having binaries for gtk
as opposed to compiling it myself.

The gtk package did not need a recompile in over a year, so I see no
harm there.

The maintenance burden of qt3 and kdelibs3 is probably much higher, and
I got rid of them by now, so I don't really care there.
