I don't mind. APNG is a nice simple format. GIF has limitations and MNG is 
almost inherently broken. To support it though, you need to make sure the 
patch is very clean. We can't be sure Chrome or Safari will want to enable it, 
and for Qt we can't control it (depends on the system libpng version after 
all). So the patch will probably need to extra clean and nice to convince 
everybody it will not be a maintenance burden later. 

But for its worth; I would like to see it go in at some point.
