With the 1.9 update Gapples can't be crafted now. This caused a huge uproar in the gold prices pre-1.9. Now that the dust has settled and we haven't been able to craft them in a while... what's the outcome? I pretty much took a hiatus from EMC shortly after 1.9 due to getting addicted to one of my new games and haven't been around to see the changes. I have been summed up- mending books made it so that getting into enchanted items will fetch you less consistent customers, killed the value of enchanting books, destroyed the demand for gold and gold prices. I haven't heard anything about the Gapples though. I'm kinda curious.
