We definitely want to stick with ANSI C as much as possible.  SDL
actually can probably handle just about any part of the project well. 
There are several "plug-ins" available.  And I am fairly certain it uses
the libpng libraries as well.  I know it can handle xpms.  Check out the
link I sent and let me know how you guys feel about it.   Mike, Rob? 
your input would be welcome since you guys have done quite a bit of
coding lately.
