More HDF5 compression filters packaged in Debian 12

The new release of Debian 12 (a.k.a. “bookworm”) provides new packages for HDF5 compression filters for system-wide installation:

It also provides the Python package hdf5plugin: python3-hdf5plugin package.

Those packages are also available in Ubuntu 23.04 “interim release”: HDF5 filter plugin packages and python3-hdf5plugin.

Late 2022, the ESRF institute asked Freexian, a services company specialized in Debian GNU/Linux, to package those HDF5 compression filters in Debian. Freexian also wrote guidelines for HDF5 filter plugin packaging.
