Rebuild Todo List Replace PIL with Pillow

2013-09-15 - Balló György

PIL is replaced with Pillow, which is an actively maintained drop-in replacement, with one detail: the PIL modules now use relative imports between each other, so it is no longer possible to write 'import Image', but one needs to write 'from PIL import Image'.

1. Replace python{,2}-imaging dependency with python2-pillow.

2. Run the following command in the root of the extracted package. If it has some result, then the package needs to be patched probably:
grep -R -e '^[ ]*import.* Image,' -e '^[ ]*import.* Image[ ]*$'

All rebuild should go to staging/community-staging first.
