I'm all for an FFVII-2 if it gets the love it deserves, and, lets face it, another game in the Compilation is inevitable if you saw the secret ending to Dirge of Cerberus. However, it needs a lot of love to be successful - ideally, they'd bring as much of the original team together as possible and they'd have an even larger budget than FFXIII did.
I wouldn't back a remake, however. Square would get crucified either way with that - if they put us old fans in mind (no voices, strict adherence to the original, essentially just a graphical upgrade), then the press and modern gamers would crucify it. If they go balls-out and properly modernise it (voices, new battle system &c), then most FF fans would crucify it. I've yet to find a fan of Cloud or Tifa's actors from Advent Children. They just couldn't win.
