If there is zlib/sqlite library bundled anywhere it needs fixing.

But splitting php-forked gd library to separate package seems to be reasonable idea - if somebody is willing to check for security bugs (both gd and php-gd). And if this package gets accepted to Debian (which may be a slight problem) I am willing to make the switch. And I think that sean will not oppose either. But it needs a maintainer who will really care of the package and not just package it for sake of php and immediatelly forgots about it.
