Bug#717076: tech-ctte: Decide what jpeg library the Debian project will use

Hi Don, hi Ondřej, dear Committee members, dear all,

Thus I think this needs a decision from tech-ctte before we make the
switch to different implementation of libjpeg.

I'm personally concerned about switching from IJG to an as-of-yet
untested in Debian LJT package. The actual uploading to Debian might
require a CTTE decision, but the packages with the desired transition
plan should be ready and tested before the CTTE makes its final
decision. [I recognize that this is going to put a fair bit of work on
the LJT maintenance team with the possibility that the work is just
going to be junked if the CTTE decides Debian should stay with IJG.[1]]

I have been using the compat mode in LJT since Debian squeeze. As part of upstream X2Go I build packages just like the one in Debian but with compat mode enabled. The packages (still 1.2.90) can be obtained from

 deb http://packages.x2go.org/debian wheezy main heuler

or with dget [1].

The Debian package libjpeg-turbo 1.2.90-1 had the compat mode (JPEGv8) enabled and was superseeded by 1.2.90-2 (no compat mode enabled anymore). You can build the 1.2.90-1 package version from the packaging Git, if interested [2].
