part of GIF's algorithm is patented. Unless Thomas wants to pay royalty
fees for each copy that we download for free, you won't see GIF support
BACK in gd again. If you need GIF support, find an old copy of gd, or
send Thomas a few billion dollars so he can send th Unisys or who ever
is holding the patents right now for the compression of GIF's algor. :-)
