I'm sorry but this is beyond stupid.

We can't use the defacto DSP testing image because it is not *FREE* enough
for Debian? It is utterly asinine to remove it because Debian doesn't want
to distribute Lena with source deb. They can remove it themselves.

As for the Debian build daemon, it has no internet access anyway, and a
asynth and vsynth only run is of dubious value.

Muh freedums, I tell ya whut.

P.S. Maybe someone should inform the Debian guys of all the hundred(s) of
patents that FFmpeg implements as well. ;)
