The squish library is a cross-platform open source implementation of DXT
compression (and decompression).
DXT compression is a very well-designed compression scheme for colour textures
with an optional alpha channel.
squish is written in standard C++ and has the following features:
* Supports the DXT1, DXT3 and DXT5 formats.
* Optimised for both SSE and Altivec SIMD instruction sets.
* Builds on multiple platforms (x86 and PPC tested).
* Very simple interface.
Isn't DXT patented?

For now, I'm going to close this bug. Maybe the Wiki of banned packages should
