Thanks.  Please go ahead and generate the 3.1 documentation now.  It'll be
current soon enough.  Had we (the SC) known that the Doxygen pages
contained GIFs, we would have asked you to yank them much earlier.  We had
an ironclad no-GIFs rule even before the egcs/gcc remerger.

The LZW patent expires June 20, 2003, so possibly we could use GIFs after
that date.  But then, the only things GIFs give you that PNG doesn't is
animation, so there's little other reason to bother with them.
