Thus, tif_fd seems redundant. And what's more, without this tif_fd setting in TIFFFdOpen, the complete platform dependent files like tif_win32 would be treating the TIFF* as opaque, which is a helpfull feature for some.


Upon a quick review, I am tempted to agree. It would appear we could drop the tif_fd member from the TIFF structure if no-one speaks up and points out a real need for it. I suspect it dates from a time before the clientdata existed.
