If I recall correctly it had to do with it being a GTK1 app ans support 
was dropped for gtk1 from main. (or something like that) As well as the 
project seeming dead and unmaintained in Debian. So they dropped it 
'round Dapper.

But as Cinepaint now uses GTK2 I don't see an issue. GetDeb even has a 
package for it atm. (sparking this email)
