In fact, at least two of the reverse dependencies (out of 8, not counting
duplicates) of the Arch openjpeg package already support openjpeg2 (poppler
and gst-plugins-bad).

I would prefer if we keep compat for both since Ubuntu 14.04 LTS doesn't
have openjpeg2 yet, and that's unfortunately not going away any time soon.
