[Bf-committers] Two new patches

Having support for a very simple floating point image format seems
reasonable - EXR/TIFF/DPX/JPEG2000/HDR are a bit complicated requiring
libs to properly support and some of these do conversions from float
to fixed 16-32 bits per channel, gamma blah blah or use lossy

So I see there is something nice about being able to write a float
image to disk without trying to be *smart* about it like DPX/KPEG2000

The patch is very small and other apps support it so should be ok?
...I'd like to know anyone uses this image format though, or if there
are areas where its in common use.
