I'd love to help with this.  Questions:

- Are the desired interfaces for the future implementation already  
- What are the current performance benchmarks or desired performance  
- When you say libraries, I think `module'.  Am I right?
- Have there been past endian gotcha lessons worth remembering?
- Guessing--you don't want to write GIFs because of patent issues?
