Description:

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?

Dang it. I think you're absolutely right. Hopefully it isn't too deeply
integrated into Mini yet and I'll be able to patch it. Otherwise it will kill
off any hope of getting VTP packaged.

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