In theory it is possible to write a set of image handling functions in pure 
PHP. For example there are pure PHP solutions for PDF creation/handling and 
also at least one for handling zip files.

But AFAIK there isn't a solution yet for image handling. And with the latest 
versions of PHP having a bundled GD library there may not be much incentive 
for people write one.
