    Well, I gues some of the reasons all of our routines work under Mac 
OS 9.x as well as various other platforms is that we only use 8-bit 
color, and color tables. A holdover from the Bad Old Days when all we 
could get on workstations were 8-bit cards, but it does make saving the 
images as GIFs a lot more straightforward.

    Oh, wait, we can't do that anymore, can we?
