a lot of packages use libpisock* (of gnome-pilot). 

Only these packages make use of opensync:
      * opensync-plugin-irmc, 
      * opensync-plugin-file, 
      * opensync-plugin-evolution

We can't speak of "at the expense" in this case at all. Both packages
are in the archive. It's just that OpenSync is far newer than pilot-link
and that fewer upstream projects make use of it.

I hope that answers your question.

Have a nice day,
