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?
