PIL bug. decodestring

echowit
Am trying out PIL 1.1.7 w/ Py 3.1.2 and had a draw.text problem.  To wit:  something ref'ing ImageFont.py about 'decodestring' being depreciated.  Replaced ~string w/ 'decodebytes' in lines 261 and 353 and all is well.
 
"decodestring" also appears in a text string in lines 386 & 388 but, of course, doesn't mess anything up but the meaning of the message, wherever it may appear.  .. if it appears, have yet to see it.
 
:-) PIL is fantastically easy to use and seems very powerfull so far.  I'm basically a numbers guy so am real weak at output formatting etc..
 
So researching various plot & picture add-ons had me in dread -- can they devise schema any more complicated than the current direction -- package 1 to mod the data, add-on 2 to format for screen or file, module X to actually output it.  Then buy the viewer!
 
G**d G*d, it's only 2-dimensions.
 
In other words, I like what you've done with this.  Looking forward to 1.2.  Please remember us 3.1.. Py types.
