There are some issues with the modified included graphics library that
Viewnior uses, and Debian/Ubuntu packaging policy. Its author does not
want it included linking to the system version of library...
So what we originally thought was a technical issue (get it packaged and
into Debian, sync to Ubuntu) has turned into a much more complicated
packaging/policy/desires-of-authors issue. I do not know if this will
all get resolved well in time for 12.04.
