I understand the ned to minimize dependencies, and I agree that Gdk is
not a good long term solution. I think the only real viable approach,
considering how many platforms to which Mono is likely to be ported, is
to write all of the loaders in C#. I plan to start on the PNG format
Is it okay to use unsafe code? Or are there some internal routines I can
use to manipulate unmanaged memory blocks? The ability to use real
pointers will make image loading much easier, and will probably be
required to implement methods like FlipRotate(). I do have a version of
FlipRotate working in safe C# and it is sloooooooooooooooow.
