Subject Re: AW: Ant task to convert PNGs to GIFs?

I like #1 the best, but it seems like the Batik project won't touch GIFs
due to licensing restrictions.  I think for now I'll just output PNGs
and convert them into GIFs through ImageMagick, which does a good job. 
Maybe if I get some extra time (ha!), I'll write an extension to the
exiting Image task to handle GIFs.

Thanks,
Tim
