Hm, I don't think I like this.  The gif images aren't the preferred form
of modification.  Would we accept it if someone had a program written in
a language which only had a non-free compiler, then uploaded source
packages to main which contained object files, and just set
Architecture: i386 ?  I don't think so.

I am sure there is precedent in this area, but I can't think of any
examples offhand.

It seems to me that if it requires non-free software to build, it has to
go into contrib, or you should just drop the images entirely.
