  While I appreciate trying to keep Gnash clean, your tendency to remove
code you think isn't being used is too much of a good thing... Xpcom can
go away for sure, we don't even use it for cookie handling anymore.
riscos we don't maintain anyway, it's done externally. OpenGL we should
keep for now till I migrate my OpenVG work to master after the release.
While the OpenGL renderer has it's problems, it does still work, and
some people do prefer it. (not that I know why...)

  Thanks for asking this time before blindly removing code, it's much
less disruptive this way.
