More removals from testing
I'd like to get the lcms/libmng/libwmf/imagemagick/plotutils dependency
chain into testing, because perlmagick has been broken in testing for a
long time, which is causing bug reports and general confusion. Most of
the pieces are ready, but there are a few left that I think we should
temporarily clear out of the way for the greater good.
Depends on imagemagick and plotutils, so we need a new version, but
it's blocked by #211862. Since autotrace is orphaned, let's pull it out
until it gets fixed.
Depends on autotrace, for which see above.
This is OK by itself, but the new version depends on both plotutils and
python2.3, which means that we have to get the python 2.3 transition
sorted out *as well*. From my initial look at it that looks like it's
going to be a lot of work, which we can break up into smaller pieces by
taking this out of testing.

rubymagick wouldn't be too bad by itself, but it depends on both
imagemagick and ruby-defaults, so we get stuck in the ruby 1.8
transition, which still appears to need fixes to a number of packages.
As with python 2.3, breaking this work up would be helpful.
With these four removed, we can upgrade lcms, libmng, libwmf,
imagemagick, plotutils, ale, animal, findimagedupes, kismet,
libapache-miniwiki-perl, mrwtoppm, oleo, prestimel, pstoedit,
python2.1-libplot, python2.2-libplot, python2.3-libplot, rss-glx,
scribus, wv, xastir, xdb; all that makes 28 more packages in testing
