I don't loop throughall  the frame's results, I use just the first
frame, which is also the biggest.  So, width and height will be
correct...on the off chance that there's a comment on some other frame
than the first, it will not catch that.

I'm attaching an anigif so you can test the dimensions.

FWIW, take a look at how tracker-extract extracts metadata with
libextractor - you might want to use a similiar format (eg
Image.Height=10;\nImage.Width=10\n) for the format string.

(GHashtable will overwrite values with the same key so it should be okay
for animated gifs)
