libvisual-bmp requires libvisual 0.2.0 on build and runtime

Either drop libvisual-bmp, drop bmp alover as bmpx may take its place (?) or get a newer libvisual-bmp that works with our currentl libvisual 0.4.0. The site of libvisual-bmp seems to be crippled to death.
This task depends upon

dropping libvisual-bmp is the only option i see, since i cannot find any 0.4.0 compatible version (0.2.0->0.4.0 was an api change in libvisual)

libvisual-bmp is orphaned and no package use it. We could just remove it as it's just a plugin. Any opinion?

Go for it. Removing seems the best solution here.
