should perhaps convert my code from using Jasper to using OpenJPEG. But
then I notice that there is no libopenjpeg5-dev in Stretch to go along
with libopenjpeg5.  Is this just temporary?

Umm, openjpeg has also been removed from Stretch/Testing and Unstable

See https://tracker.debian.org/pkg/openjpeg and https://tracker.debian.org/news/791076

It has been replaced by openjpeg2:


Okay, now I see it. Why is the package named "openjp2-7" instead of "openjpeg2-7"? It seems to me that the latter would be easier to find.

Why is/was there a "libopenjpeg5" package?
