Mass NMU, setting Build-Depends to libpng-dev version that is for libpng3
sounds like a way to go.
Note that the recent python translation took more than a month to complete,
I believe (well, I didn't).
It might be easier to set libpng3 to conflict with libpng2, so that
until libpng2 is removed from the system libpng3 does not enter,
which would make the problem more obvious.
Then again, do we really want to do this now?
