That should read "patent" instead of "pattern". I am not sure wether this
is a redhatism. In any case, LZW compression is likely affected by a
patent hold by unisys (which will expire this friday in the us, and in one
year in europe and japan), and thus either you get a license from unisys
(don't bother, too expensive), or get a version of gimp that allows LZW
and possibly commit crimes and and decapitated ;)
