Distilling a wish list from the recent postings, I come up with this:

	* RLE format support

	* Test pattern generators

	* Complement: cutting out strips of an image

	* Support for multiple-frame images should be documented;
there are some demo scripts in Scripts/ (gifmaker.py, explode.py) but
they're not very well-known.  

	* There are other font rendering solutions such as t1lib and
pilfont.  t1lib seems too large to add to PIL, but maybe pilfont can
be added.

	* Freetype support

	* t1lib

	* Clean up and document the SANE interface (my job).  

Other suggestions?

Well, there was this doggy. He was a very clever doggy. He said things like...
like... "I would feel infinitely more comfortable in your presence if you
would agree to treat gravity as a law, rather than one of a number of
suggested options."
