Well, I find already the Windows distribution quite large (due largely to Qt, precisely, 
but I reckon its usefulness so I don't tell it is a dead weight!), I am not keen to add 
extra charge, unless it is really useful.

I first thought it was to support Gif for Qbzr icons or something, and was about to 
suggest to just stick to PNG...

So in what form it is useful for users? Viewing versioned image files directly inside 
QBzr? That's useful although it will never be exhaustive... Other uses cases?

It is more reasonable... :-)
