Thanks to you and the others for the help and suggestions.  I have
now filed an ITP and uploaded a new version that closes the ITP.
I also modified the copyright and package description.

I found an ITP for it it (java-imaging-utilities, #431907).  If a JIU
package becomes available in the future, I will update blimp to depend
on it.

dcraw is in the source tree, but is not built by the debian rules since a
dcraw package already exists.  But it is built on other platforms, and I
want to keep it in the source tree for completeness.
