Bug#759406: Image sizes and concatenation

Josh Triplett <josh@joshtriplett.org> (2014-08-31):
> I was the person at that DebConf session who suggested concatenatable

> Offsets were exactly what I had in mind when I suggested that this

> Thanks for working on this!

I'd strongly suggest using "bts -m show $bugnumber" and reply-all; right
now your replies break threading (which is a minor annoyance), but more
importantly, they don't go to the previous participants to this bug
report (including the submitter).
