 - Most people associated with gdk-pixbuf would like to see it have 
   simple save capabilities. That may or may not include Federico,
   the maintainer.

   Until gdk-pixbuf is distributed with GTK+, I'm not too inclined to
   beat Federico over the head on the matter. (Especially since he
   can beat me over the head back harder for things I'm behind on
   on gdk-pixbuf.)

 - You should consider the first API of gdk-pixbuf to be pretty much locked
   in now, so this is unlikely to get in before the next major release -
   which will presumably be the release with GTK+-1.4

 - You need to provide a patch against gdk-pixbuf for us to be able to
   evaluate the patch. A little library that just links against
   gdk-pixbuf is not close enough to a final patch to meaningfully
   comment on, since there shouldn't be separate modules for saving,
   in my opinion.
