wow! As someone who normally appreciates informality on mailing lists  
and relishes in the triumph of the vernacular I found this a rude  
first post.

Can you please provide some details as to what's gone so horribly  
wrong. I would be surprised if the problem is actually with PIL per se  
and not with one of the underlying C libraries.
