I think if we ship either qt3 or gtk1, that makes us upstream and we
become responsible for backporting any security fixes made in qt4/qt5
and gtk2/gtk3.

We usually hand wave away this kind of responsibility because we
promptly ship the upstream releases, but it doesn't work here. Even
Debian isn't shipping gtk1 anymore.
