I agree strongly with that principle.  Two questions:

A. What has been done thusfar WTR reviving upstream development?

B. In the meantime, how should I support jpegtran?  Bundle a custom binary
in the subpackage and patch the module, or let it sit with known partial
functionality?

On a tangential note IIRC this patch is in Debian's libjpeg, not that that
should be any sort of guideline for us, I'm just putting it out there.
