In this particular case, it has nothing to do with image create, but
image size detection.  Text::Textile will load Image::Size, which will
load ImagE::Magick... all just to put width/height into an img tag
Textile is creating for a specified image.

Sure, Image::Info would be a better choise for Textile, but I just the
site up without core dumping apache, or having to rewrite 3 other CPAN
