We may be able to get away with not using GIFs even with transparency
problems.  I sent an evil patch to wml so the "transparent colour" is
white not black (based on the assumption that most pages have a white
background).  We could possibly do the same for our images.

After about 9 months or more without X I will have it back next week,
which mean I can try out that theory.
