The ITP for libjpeg-turbo also has some emails:
http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=602034 which shed some
more background on this.

Finally, it doesn't currently look like the libjpeg-turbo packages are
at all in a state to replace the libjpeg8 or libjpeg6b packages. I'm not
sure why the CTTE should rule to replace the IJG packages when the work
and testing necessary to make the LJT packages ready hasn't been done.

asphyxiation in deep space that I really wish I'd listened to what my
mother told me when I was young."
