Damn, you're right. I wonder why we haven't made use of this, yet. BTW, is this code from JAI (like the classes Oleg Tkachenko uses in his TIFF renderer) or is this separately developed code (ASF origin)?
This was contributed by Sun and is I believe the code came from JAI (great group of guys). There have been some bug fixes/improvements since then but it is basically that code.
You know that there's a number of people who would actually be
interested in creating/having a BSD-style image (codec) library?
Sure, but given imageio does it make sense to put a lot of effort into an independent codec library? If I were going to create a codec library I would create one that plugged into image-io.
I think that should be one of the packages that should be separated out, when FOP and Batik get closer together.
This probably makes sense.

However, It is probably worth pointing out that you already include a PNG encoder/decoder with the FOP distribution, from Batik!
Let me know if you want/need more info (including pointers to where FOP does the image loading would be helpful as well).
