I agree, that these are nasty. Nevertheless, I tend to prefer problems
that *one* person can fix (presence of GD on the server) over those
that mulitple persons might have (presence of Flash in the browser).

Apart from that, I do believe that the GD related problems are mostly
the result of using the Perl module.with its tight binding to a
particular version of GD. I always wondered, whether it wouldn't be
possible to rely on the libgd-tools instead (or another command line
frontend), which is much easier to install.


Look, that's why there's rules, understand? So that you think before
you break 'em.
