I am all in favour for the removal of libwraster, but didn't you forget about the usage in x11, where it is used for much more than just the image loading? It would be nice, if we could get rid of this code here, but without this change we would keep on using the old wraster files we currently have included in back, even if y newer version of libwraster was installed.

Well, the stuff we still need is really basic - getting the correct visual and colormap, etc. We could rewrite it, but then it would still have to be maintained. I've thought about it, but it doesn't really seem worth my time.
