Having Dcm4chee _properly_ packaged for Debian would be a
great step forward. Since we now do have Orthanc the need for
Dcm4chee is not as pressing anymore.

I do remember inofficial Debian packages for it which could
help to get started (or not).

Unmaintained, closed-source libraries are quite an obstacle
for a proper package. Sun JDK vs OpenJDK is a lesser worry in
that context.

MoMing is a really good idea.
