While I don't like censorship, I don't really see the great need for 
this package either.  I don't know if there is currently any way to
invalidates its way into debian, but frankly I hope that the maintainer
decides to ship it with harmless pictures instead, leaving the option
to get the pornographic pictures to those users who might have the 
urge to get them.

I don't really like debian being labled as "the porn-distribution", on
the other hand, we don't need to be called "debian-censors" either.

I guess that was my 5 cents,
