There is currently no way (see below) to stop animations as it used to be a
window-specific option, but since all the image code moved from riscos/ to
image/ this is not possible and the option cannot work as it did. I have a
modified version here that respects this option on a global level (and for
MNGs too), but I am currently unable to check it in as it would cause
problems due to other changes I'm still completing elsewhere. Assuming
things go fairly well, this should all start appearing later in the week.

The minimum_gif_delay states the smallest possible time in centiseconds that
a frame can request a transition after. As such, setting it to a very high
value will effectively stop animations for you. The default is (IIRC) 10cs.
