You forgot about libraries. It's easy to rip-and-replace a ray tracing engine, (non)linear system solver, etc. for one written in Fortress with a similar interface, and still keep the same expensive C++, Java, or Python high-level framework.
As for your example, what still uses GTK+ 1.2, aside from XMMS 1 (XMMS 2 doesn't) and groach? If this were a real performance or other problem, we would have a 1.2-compatible wrapper over 2.0.
