image.module is *still* not in core, besides the fact that it is (one  
of) the most popular contrib modules we currently have..
I am still for having the image.module in core.. I can remember that  
we wanted better image handling in core when releasing 4.7, so I  
encourage Dries to think about this..
Also have a look at the great work 'robrechtj' did on the splitting  
of the image API/gallery/handling..
- 'robrechtj' Sandbox: http://cvs.drupal.org/viewcvs/drupal/ 
- Walkahs image.module: http://cvs.drupal.org/viewcvs/drupal/ 

Maybe Walkah can comment on this image-thing, and together with  
robrechtj? Though I don't know if he is on the devellist.
