sweet.. Rather than add support to the normal routines I will add imlib 
versions of the routines which can be enabled by a passed compiler switch, 
which will be disabled by default. That way we can have 3-4 versions of the 
Graphics routines- gdkpixbuf which is fast and supports most important 
things, basic which just uses GDK routines and is therfore very minimal; and 
gdk_imlib, which supports almost everything and is as fast as gdkpixbuf in 
some ways but slower in others. The possible fourth is of course what I had 
thought of doing to begin with, that is using both Pixbuf and gdk_imlib, 
depending on which supported what and which was faster. This way we could 
set it up so that when we get a GNOME version, then the GNOME1 version could 
use gdk_imlib by default, and GNOME2 could use the gdkpixbuf version by 
default, which would pretty much ensure that most users had the right 
libraries required.
