I would say Ape is quite good at accepting data from non-Zope-aware tools, and I'd like to make it better. The fact that Ape stores the image dimensions separately from the image content is an implementation decision in the serializer. You could instead tell the serializer to detect image dimensions when loading the object. The detection is a relatively inexpensive operation.
