Change imports of PIL Library so they'll work with pillow

Description of problem:

Fedora 19 is switching from using python-imaging (PIL) to python-pillow.  This is mostly backwards compatible but importing the python-imaging relevant libraries is undergoing a change.  In PIL, the libraries could either be imported like this:

import Image

or like this:

from PIL import Image

In python-pillow (and thus, Fedora19+), only the latter will work.  I've grepped the sources of wavextract and found a few import statements that need to be updated.  Patch attached to fix those.  Patch should be upstreamable as PIL supports both the old and new forms of the import.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

If I don't hear anything back from you, I'll go ahead and use provenpackager powers to apply this patch to the RawHide package next week.  I'll leave sending the patch to upstream up to you, though.

Comment 2 Rahul Sundaram 2013-01-29 18:09:45 UTC
upstream is dead. there is atleast one open security issue.  other distributions have abandoned this package.  I have posted about this to devel list.

Comment 3 Simon 2013-01-29 18:16:40 UTC
yeah it seems so that upstream is dead. I mailed him about the security issue and about python-pillow. he never mailed back :-(
maybe we should really remove tucan, too!

Comment 4 Rahul Sundaram 2013-01-29 18:59:57 UTC
I have already done that for Fedora.  If you could do that for EPEL, we would be done.

Comment 5 Simon 2013-01-29 19:00:49 UTC
yeah, i will do that!
