The second one is the version of the image module that is going to be in
4.6, this is basically a complete rewrite of the one in the
modules/images. module/images in the old version that is going to be
removed very soon.

I think that the version in the 45 directory is to be used as an upgrade
path, so that you can move to the new version in the directory above.

To get this one working, just remove the include image.inc from the top
of the image.module file.

Don't feel silly, at the moment we are in a difficult position where the
version in James sandbox is ready for cvs, but it has not been moved
to the module directory.

James said that this is going to happen very soon, and things will be
alot easier.
