The 4 bugs of cimg-dev can be easily fixed and I already have the fixed
package locally, but did not yet commit. The build hangs in some point
(i386) and I did not yet have the time to figure out why.

If it really hurts you that much, I can commit it today or tomorrow, so
you can test it.

What about starting in the usual way doing an NMU? I can't speak for the
pkg-scicomp team, but a hijack in this situation IMHO isn't polite.
