Issue status update for http://drupal.org/node/19611

 Project:      Drupal
 Version:      cvs
 Component:    base system
 Category:     tasks
 Priority:     normal
 Assigned to:  Junyor

 Status:       patch

I am not too sure if the gd tool kit should be split into 2 tool kits.
Now I am only speaking from a debian pov, but the php4-gd package is
linked against gd2. Also from a Drupal POV, the difference between gd1
and gd2 are so minor that having them as they have always been, as
effectively 1 tool kit has alway made sence from a maintenance POV.
Also the standard php extension is just called gd.
-1 on dividing gd1 and gd2 into separate tool kits.

The new image handling tools in core have a lot of GD2-specific logic,
making image.inc overly cluttered and complicated.  If gd2 were just
treated like another toolkit (though the only one included by default),
then the image.inc code would be much cleaner and more easily
This patch removes all the GD2 stuff from image.inc and puts it into
image.gd2.inc.  The _settings hook is now doing what it sounds like it
should, return settings for the toolkit.  I've added a _check hook
which will tell if the PHP functions needed are available.  If _check
fails, then the toolkit will not be listed on admin > settings and an
error will be logged in watchdog.
I've also update image.gd1.inc, image.imlib.inc, and image.imagick.inc
with the same logic.
