PIL cannot do it by itself.

However, Tkitner is largely distributed with Python - and is instaled 
by default in python for windows. 

So it is reasonably safe to create a Tkinter instance to display the 
image - even if your program uses another toolkit, the load should be 
less then xv. 

This was something I was wanting as well, so I crafted a small 
function which loads the needed modules and displays a new image. It 
can also work as a standallone lightweight "xv".
