Exactly, but your wrong again. This would be similiar to converting an image 
to an XImage/Pixmap and then back again, something that is discouraged when 
editing images because guess what: You loose color depth if the display 
depth != 32bpp.

In case working at TrollTech diminishes your ability to read, this is why I 
was advocating using it as a "accelerated format for viewing images" and not 
as a format for editing.

What the hell happened to you people. This stuff is obvious, apparent at first 
glance, and I discussed several times.

Yes, it is a lot of drama. Certainly much more than it is worth for me. Your 
on your own.
