Are u planning to come up with new library that will replace LIBTIFF..??? What is this all about

quoting Ron's very first mail in this thread:

> I'm not really interested in forking a 'competitor' to libtiff (for all the
> usual long term time budget reasons),

....and in a later mail he says:

> I'm raising this here precisely because I don't want to reimplement the whole
> lib

Priyanshu, could you please be more conservative in your quoting style? Next, these two quotes of the entire digest will probably both get included in the next digest, too. This gets multiplied by the number of subscribers... You will have wasted many megabytes of traffic per actual contributed character, which is something of a record up till now. Ask yourself: would you be interested in the TIFF file format at all, if it was equally redundant and costed you several megabytes of storage per single 8 bits of image color data?
