Default libsdl1.2-dev – Nolonger supports Color Ascii Ourput (libcaca) - WHY?!

Please note that you tried to submit a bug but didn't get the syntax right,
so it won't have worked.

Check the changelog. It reads:

libsdl1.2 (1.2.14-6.3) unstable; urgency=low

* Remove support for libaa (there’s libcaca), libsvga (directfb
supports more architectures) and libesd (pulseaudio does much more).

That's very unlikely, seeing as the author of libcaca is Sam Hocevar, who
is also a Debian developer, and contributed to the SDL packaging as recently
as June 2012. (Again, check the changelog.)
