Thanks for the links. With I imagine thousands of GEMPAK scripts running around the world I would imagine I am not the only one a bit nervous, though.

There's a nice presentation on it from late last year. http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/committees/usercom/2007OctMtg/TuellJune2007Partners.ppt And one from NCEP presented in the fall: http://www.ecmwf.int/newsevents/meetings/workshops/2007/MOS_11/presentations_files/Schotz.pdf I don't see the words "going away" in there, I just think that 1) it's an unknown entity right now and 2) might be more complex than just downloading a new binary so 3) if you want to be sure you can read GEMPAK files in 10 years, you'll be safe with IDV.
