Linking -gui into GSWeb is not an option... far too heavy, many
categories I need to checkout.  I'd much rather duplicate the code for
jpg/png/gif wrappers then and add support for other formats as the need

I see many uses for command line tools and/or servers webservices to
manipulate images, sounds and/or video.  I simply do not believe any of
the basic wrappers belong into -gui/AppKit, but that the class
organization we inherit... oh well.

Yet I have sympathy with the reluctance to add new dependencies to
-base.  I'll duplicate the code... maybe I can reduce the duplication
since GSWeb will probably only need a subset.
