I cannot think of anything worse to break to cause unholy hell for all developers alike other than breaking gcc or jpeg. Sheeze, I know it is for the greater good of the future, and preventing exploits, blah, but those type of FUBARs literally cost hundreds of thousands if not millions of manhours to implements. In those cases every piece of software being built that contains a png will have to be modified. I'm sure the png devs were not on any Christmas lists (or other holiday lists) for the past few years... -- David C. Rankin, J.D.,P.E.
