Status: Rejected
Change Description: no spec change
Rationale: At the risk of missing the obvious, what's the use case? Is this
just to make drawing animated sprites easier? It seems like in most cases
animated sprites are going to have to jump around from animation to animation
and in practice are unlikely to just spin around a single set of frames... in
fact, it seems frankly easier just to write the 4 or 5 line function to do
animation manually, and just yank the frames from a larger sprite image where
the frames are all given in a long strip.
