Seems like you forgot to submit a whole bunch of patches... I only got
the PNG file optimization and the image dimension patches so far.

Imho, we should also be careful with optimizing code for the sake of
bandwidth reduction and speed. Most modern browsers have caching enabled
by default, so most of those performance improvements will only come
into operation once. I'll accept any patches as long as they don't have
an impact on maintainability. Things like merging modular files into a
single monster probably do.
