Hi Pythonics,

I'm currently evaluating for a wxPython based fax viewer/manager project 
for fax G3 tiffs, which are typically generated by hylafax.

I've found the Image Squeezer on http://starship.python.net/jjkunce/
as a basic example, how to mix wxPython and PIL, where I fall over this:
When loading a fax tiff, im.mode is set to "1", and trying to convert it
to RGB results in:

IOError: decoder group3 not available

Is there any chance, that PIL supports this decoder soon, or do
I need to look for other ways to get around this?
