Well, after talking with Gürkan, this version of supertux is
OpenGL-only. I picked up a patch, as described in [1] and applied it so
that we can ship a SDL(-only) version, until a way to ship both version
easily is found.

I added a note as a NEWS.Debian file.

Unfortunately, there's a problem with this version: it contains music &
sound effects that are not DFSG-free. I'll have a look at trying to
delete some of them in a week (once I'm back on a sid box, with X
enable, I'm working over ssh at the moment, and a better box than my
iBook :p).

The (non-free) source and binary (i386) packages are available[2].

Included in this version.

Will be done next week.

Maintainer/Uploaders set according to Gürkan's wishes.

PS: Cc-ing the new upstream release available bugreport so that this
    version can be tested before it is DFSG-ified.
