I feel like this bug is being hijacked to flip things back to the "bad" old
way, rather than being a useful conversation about how to make the whole image
decoder better.

When Apple abandoned these decoders in favor of the CoreGraphics routines, they
effectively headed down a road that provided superior performance through
internal use of CGImageRef types (which abstract the various image types). 
Peter's patches brought the image-decoder classes more in line with this

It seems to me that the Qt port's objection is addressed entirely in the
current sources, with the one small nit that there are now some #ifdefs in the

Perhaps we can figure out how to remove the #ifdef code from the header through
PIMPL or some other technique.
