I absolutely agree. I still find the input tag library useful, and in
fact I've made improvements to it on my local copy that I use in
production sites but haven't committed yet. I'm just going to go ahead
and commit what I've done, make some more improvements that I've wanted
to do for a long time and commit those too - with a view to releasing a 1.2.

I'm not quite sure what has caused my personal apathy towards the
project... there are some really useful pieces here! Although I
personally only use the input taglib (other than standard, of course).

I agree with all of what you've said about the frustration of open doors
with no one home. I guess the question is, is anyone using these
taglibs? If we cut out the deprecated / replaced by standard taglibs are
we left with something that is actually useful for people? If it is then
I hope we (myself included) find that motivation to at least present a
this-is-still-workable/valid impression to taglibs?
