I agree that inclusion of DIB features in Libtiff is essential to complete
its Win32 port.  Early Libtiff, which was targeted for SGI Unix boxes,
supported tiff-to-native bitmap operations, but this trend (regrettably)
died in ports to other systems.  I have considered a TIFF-to-DIB addition to
Libtiff, but have not pursued this beyond a little defeatured version for my
own use.  So, my opinion is that this and other tiff-to-native operations
would (or should) be welcome additions to Libtiff.
