the point method in the ImageDraw class allows you to draw individual
pixels; it doesn't work on RGB images, though (that's fixed in 0.3b1).

0.3b1 will also provide 2D array syntax, including slicing for crop/paste
operations (guess it's high time, now that 1.4 has been available in 9

getpixel is the official way to do that; getdata if you wish to access
the whole image as a 1D array.
