Be aware that I plan (in the near future) to take out the image
support code from xfns.c, w32fns.c and macfns.c and consolidate it in
a new image.c file.  

That should reduce 15000 lines of code to approx 5500 lines.

It seems that most of the image code in macfns.c isn't actually
used/ported yet, so it would be a good thing to consolidate the code
before finishing the image support for MAC.
