mhmh... saving the knob anims in an xml file is too much hassle IMO.
my first animated knob was based on a gif animation.

now i resorted to png because of the alpha, and gif being bad...
is the patent hassle gone now ?

i have put all animation phases into one png.
now the problem is, that we need one integer as metadata, to find the
number of animation phases.

Then all height and width of the knob images could be calculated.
i know, that there are fields for metadata inside a png.

Is it possible to set and get them with GdkPixbuf ?
we should try to agree on something.
