D'Accord. I would love to throw in the GIF stuff, again. If somebody can proof
me that we don't face legal trouble, you will get it. But, since libjpeg dropped
it in 6b, I wouldn't be too optimistic.

What we *can* do is twofold: using MemoryImageSources (probably a good idea for
small "icons", anyway), and bringing in png (which I'm currently exploring).
