Has photopaint been overlooked or is it now disregarded. It works with

What's the story?
Well, Debian certainly doesn't have the resources to test for
compatibility with all arbitrary, third-party, binary-only software.
But if you'd care to provide details on what isn't working (preferably
as a bug report against the package causing the breakage, if you know
what package that would be), it's possible someone would be able to
fix this before the sarge release.
On further searching it appears to depend on xlib6g which has been
depricated. I assume that little can be done because there ain't no
source for photopaint to modify. I may have to settle for two separate
installations of Debian.
