In my original idea, this widget was going to be very simple (as it
actually is now), and would delegate such tasks to another library, be
it Imlib or another more animation-oriented library.

I vaguely remember there was some talk about a possible `gnome-media'
library; could this idea be useful here?

In any case, if animated GIF, MPEG, AVI (or whatever) support is
needed, I'd like to help putting it in...  I am not just sure *where*
it should be placed.

It does not yet allow you to extract frames, but just a couple of
additional lines are needed.
