Since PNG is now a official W3O standard, I don't have much choice,
do I? :-)
Unfortunately, the current design of the "official" PNG libraries
doesn't support incremental decoding, but a "read from file handle
only" version would be rather trivial. I'll give that a try RSN.
While waiting, you could use something like:
im = im.open(file)
if im.format == "PNG":
size = im.size
im = im.open("Guido@30dpi.gif").resize(size)
