[webkit-dev] Modern image formats for WebKit

We should consider whether to keep the image format decoders in the WebKit tree or not.

Dave Hyatt originally created this when we first were planning the Apple Windows port of WebKit, but in the end we chose to not use them for the Windows port. They aren’t used in the Windows port nor in the Mac or iOS ports; for all of those we use a separate image decoding library.

So this is a really a question for people working on other active ports like the EFL and GTK ones. Are there other libraries that you could use for image decoding, or do you still want to keep and maintain a WebKit copy of these image decoders?
