How is shipping a redundant copy of essentially the same code better than just 
applying the patch to our libpng package?

There's even an upstream for those patchsets, I really don't see why it can't 
just be applied to our libpng.

I know that it's a nonstandard extension for PNG. In fact, I'm really angry at 
Mozilla for having come up with that instead of promoting the already existing 
MNG! But given the situation we have now, it's in the best interest of Fedora 
as a distribution to ship an APNG-enabled libpng.
