The GBF handling code in the SWORD engine will remain. At least for a  
long time. If a bug is found for the GBF handling of a GBF module, it  
probably would be fixed.

If a GBF module has a bug that needs to be fixed, it'd likely result  
in an OSIS module.

It has been years since a GBF module has been added to the repository.  
It is in that fashion that it is being deprecated.

We have 48 GBF modules. But a few of these are being converted to OSIS  
and are in beta.
