  1. I believe under those set out goals, the project is feasable, even if not very easy. But then again, usefull projects rarely are very easy.
  2. I'm willing to do it.

It seems that you are looking for a TIFF conformance test suite rather than the technology demo that the current sample TIFF files represent. Your item #5 is clearly important, but would the result be donated back to libtiff, or would it become another copyrighted item on your web site?

I am willing to offer assistance if the result will be incorporated into libtiff's sample pictures archive under the current license terms and distributed the same way. Development GraphicsMagick is now able to read and write quite a few "interesting" permutations. This is something that I planned to do anyway.
