[gdal-dev] tiff support: internal or external?

I am wondering what are the pros and cons of using tiff support from
internal or external (libtiff, libgeotiff). Are there any limitations with
either approach? I am specifically wondering about the consequences with
the bigtiff support. Do both approaches support bigtiff if I use the most
recent versions?

Thanks for any hints on what is the better option.
