So much for sabbatical; I just committed an MS RLE8 decoder. You
can use it in your GPL program. Sure it's simple, but the simple stuff is
best for testing. I'll do the 4-bit variant tomorrow night. Soon, it'll be
safe to remove the XAnim RLE decoder. My MS RLE decoders only support
BGR32 and BGR24, but does anyone care about BGR16 and BGR15?
