I am really unclear on whether there will be fallout from tools removal.

I have scripts that use tiff2ps. ImageMagick can convert tiffs to ps, but some versions of ImageMagick shift or scale the image. tiff2ps works. I think that with a ps-based workflow, tiff2ps is the best tools to convert tiffs to eps.

I agree and I would extend the above considerations to tiff2pdf.

> I don't mind building tiff2ps from source, but I'm hoping that if something breaks, patches to tiff2ps.c will be accepted.

I would say the same, extending it to tiff2pdf again. Instead of killing the tools, invite people to address their problems and accept the eventual patches. Meaning, be willing to move the tools from "unsupported" to "tools" again if support arises.
