OK, there seems to be a majority for that.

Then I would say the image processing code changes should be completed 
before the release: img to img2, doc, regressions, and removal of all 
the if-zeroed parts in the code. I have tried to contribute on that but 
failed, I dont get the logic behind the img/img2 thing nor the if-zero code.
