Would wrapping an external around something like image magick be 
helpful in addressing some of Rev's shortcomings in the image 
manipulation library?  I haven't used image magick but it seems to do 
lots of neat things.  It would obviously be slower since it was wrapped 
in an external but maybe it would still be fast enough to make Rev an 
option in some projects that it currently isn't an option for.

I haven't looked at the feasibility of this, just wondering at this
