Is it worth reconsidering whether Emacs should link to ImageMagick by

My .emacs now has (setq imagemagick-types-inhibit t) due to security and stability concerns. Even so, I'd prefer it if 'configure' disabled ImageMagick by default because then I wouldn't have to worry about emacs -Q in the normal case (or about passing --without-imagemagick to 'configure' all the time).

It would be easy to change the default, and I submitted a patch proposing this as Bug#33587.
