Not-So-SimpleCV: Tracebacks and Bitmaps

My progress with the SimpleCV update was somewhat mixed yesterday. I was able to go from a low of tracebacks on any image operation to a high of loading two photo formats (though not stored with quite the right attributes) before encountering dependency tracebacks on img.show(). Hooray! But I …
