Pillow-2.3.0 is broken for gifs on linux and windows. On linux 2.0.0 certainly
works ok for python 3.3.

Currently I'm having difficulty building pillow 2.0.0 for windows. I have tried
to set up the various roots and the compilations appear to work, but my lib dirs
don't bear any obvious relation to the build dirs for stuff so I end up with a

LINK : fatal error LNK1104: cannot open file 'LIBC.lib'

bah, I thought pillow was supposed to make this go away, but it's just as hard
as before.

I shouldn't rely on pre-built binaries :(
