I don't think this is actually what Holger is asking for.  I think the disputed
pieces of the code could probably be modified without losing the new decoders.

My own objection to Holger's proposal is not along the lines of losing new
image decoders but rather of gaining no practical advantage (see my detailed
responses to Adam Treat's list of cons above) and yet losing clarity and
simplicity.  Basically, I claim it makes moving forward harder and costs time
to what I see as no good purpose (obviously Holger disagrees).
