        Critical Dependencies

        Imlib makes image loading incredibly easier for
        both the user and developer of programs
        that display images, however the installation
        difficulties are extreme and many of Imlib's mandatory dependencies are on the edge of being abandoned or are never going to be completed.

        A significant number of programs depend on
        Imlib as of this writing, but many of Imlib's
        own dependencies (such as the font library)
        are not even compilable on UNIXes. To worsen
        this stress, Imlib itself is not being maintained
        enough to keep up with these issues. If one
        of Imlib's dependencies is abandoned, Imlib
        becomes completely useless.

        I cannot stress it enough that Imlib really
        needs better maintainance, along with more
        sensitive and proficient management of its
        numerous mandatory dependencies... or perhaps make
        those dependencies optional instead of mandatory.
