A properly written modern viewer is supposed to ignore GIF89a packets it
cannot process, but a properly-written old viewer that hasn't been updated
correctly will usually refuse anything except a GIF87a. I think
Projector-3 just checks for the GIFxxx header and processes whatever it can
regardless of the version ID.
