Sorry, I forgot to ask a few things.
I was wondering if there is much "need" for it, since FFmpeg does support gif quite fully I think. Basically I am curious why you care :-)
This is related to whether there is much of a point in keeping support for the old version.
I also think if we want to keep support for the old version it might look nicer if done via #defines (e.g. throwing away extra parameters is one single trivial line of code like that).
If I saw right you also added some extra error checking, it would be kind of nice to have that as a separate patch.
