Patch to use the form of import of PIL that is pillow compatible

Description of problem:

python-imaging is going to be replaced by python-pillow in F19.  For rationale, see the Feature page: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Features/Pillow

python-imaging (PIL) supports being imported via either of:

import Image

from PIL import Image

Pillow, however, only supports the latter.  I grepped through bkchem and found some places where import Image is used.  Will attach a patch to fix these.

Will pillow Provide python-imaging or should I switch the Requires to python-pillow at some point?
Comment 2 Toshio Ernie Kuratomi 2013-01-15 12:22:10 EST
The package that is currently slated to be reviewed http://smani.fedorapeople.org/python-pillow-1.7.8-1.fc19.src.rpm

does Provide python-imaging.  The compatibility is supposed to be good so it makes sense for it to continue to do so.

At some point we might want to clean that up so that we're using the actual package name but it'll likely be years into the future before the python-imaging Provides goes away.
