If it's only about the security bug, I don't think it's a good idea to remove
giflib from testing at this time as the bug can easily be fixed by giflib
leaving the NEW queue or patching giflib 3 AFAICS. Though if you think giflib
3.x is not fit for release even if the security bug where fixed, then I'll
happily remove giflib 3.0-12 from testing :-)
