Yes, and yes. However current decoder cannot handle animated gifs, that
is why this demuxer is still present. Handling animated gifs through
image2 is not obvious because parsing these gifs and extracting each
picture with a parser would be quite equivalent to decode them.
So here we lost a feature which worked, and I don't like it much, even
if I understand. Can you please point at exploitable problems if you
remember them right now ? I'll look at it.
