Ultimately we has to consider a fork of PIL.
Do you guys know, if this is allowed -- per the PIL license !?
Of course this would be super sub optimal,
but then, it's effectively what I have right now -- and you have your
own version .....
To summerize: numpy can probably do many things of PIL already better
-- I'm talking about all the transformation stuff of course.
So only the file IO would have to get forked out -- to scipy for example ;-)
