+Bitter Pill aka fakepil aka VERY Limited Pure Python PIL
+========================================================
+
+
+This implements a super-small subset of the PIL interface.
+You almost certainly do NOT want this. Use Pillow or PIL instead!
+
+I needed a pure Python PIL implementation that ran under Jython and Python
+with my application. I extracted the file and history from another project
+(if you look at change history this will be obvious).
+
+The license for this is LGPL2.
+
+It depends on other libraries for actual image support. Fake pil requires:
+
+  * http://code.google.com/p/pypng/ https://github.com/drj11/pypng
+  * http://emesene.svn.sourceforge.net/viewvc/emesene/trunk/emesene/pygif/
+
+The licenses of the above are also different so be aware if you start
+shipping these together!
+
+Right now it has limited support png and gif file read support and pixel
+reading.
