The title of your post is inappropriate.

Gviz is an excellent, well-maintained, and widely used package. The 
maintainer is highly skilled, in the top tier of Bioconductor 
developers. There is no reason for it to be withdrawn from Bioconductor.

Part of the joy of open-source software is participating in support and 
maintenance -- why not tackle unanswered questions with your own best 
effort? I find that answering questions is a great way to understand the 
software I'm working with, especially if I intend to extend it.
