----- Forwarded message from Alan Cox <alan@redhat.com> -----
I was having a rummage for other stuff for part of Brycecast and I found
there are tools that will generate gifs that are old old style RLE compressed
not LZW and thus should be patent free gifs and for most of the gnome uses
not much bigger. Take a look at gifsicle
