Personally, I would like to see *no* internal changes in Pillow. It should  
just be the pip/easy_install compatible form of PIL, hopefully folded back  
in when distutils2 rules the waves.

The bug preferably with tests and patch should be passed upstream and if  
necessary another release of PIL cut. That would fit my definition of  
playing nicely with Fredrik's hard work.

BTW. Could you update the docs of Pillow to point to MacPorts or Brew as  
well as Fink for managing the required libraries? And it would be nice if  
we could get Pillow to hook up to the Windows binaries if possible.
