Description: The Hermes pixel-format library
 Hermes is a library that does the dirty work of a graphics library
 or application that nobody else wants to do, and it does it fast
 because the effort is concentrated on just that. The thing nobody
 wants to do is conversion between pixel formats - between all pixel
 formats that is, not between any two. There are handwritten assembler
 routines in Hermes that should make anything look fast.
 An application or library that uses Hermes will for example be able to
 render into one buffer and convert it to whatever pixel format is available
 on the target platform at the time.
 Other services provided by Hermes include palette handling including
 caching of lookup tables, and surface clearing to a specific colour value.

Justification: Some packages were hijacked (clanlib, pingus), gkermit only
had an initial release and no upload since then, ckertmit an initial release
and a NMU; packages NMUed, etc.  Also, see

retitle 143651 ITA: hermes1 -- The Hermes pixel-format library

Since gstreamer (a project I work on) depends on hermes1, I am
willing to look after this package.  However, if someone really,
really, REALLY wants this package, let me know.
