Well all unencumbered stuff will probably be part of the default install from the 
distros so no need install extra stuff for it. I think Thomas 'community' packages
refered to packages with stuff Red Hat or anyone other US company for various reasons
can't include in the default package.

As for non-lwz gif, didn't the lwz patent expire some months ago? Anyway we have a 
MNG decoder in GStreamer already so no need for cruddy gifs :)
