webcollage shipped in woody.  These random underage people you are
worried about have been 'subjected' to porn for three years now.

The only thing I would worry about is if this shipped in debian-jr., or
debian-crazy-fundamentalist or something.  Otherwise, it's up to the
admin to decide site policy and decide if (s)he wants to filter, not
install xscreensaver, or whatever.

Let's not degenerate into FUD so quickly.  It contains no images in and
of itself.  If webcollage will generate legal trouble for distributors,
so would a graphical browser.  Quick, let's drop mozilla so no one can
look at a porn site.  Good thinking.
