Looks simple and good. I have one question on your dynamic-gif-stack. Is there a specific reason to calculate width and height dynamically? Is it not easy to let the user provide it?

The reason is that if updates happen in the middle of the screen for example. Then you can just cut out the bounding rectangle, which is essentially what dynamic-gif-stack does. The images are an order of magnitude smaller that way (200bytes vs 2kb).

node-png and node-jpeg have fixed-{png,jpeg}-stack where the user can specify the size.

Oh.. that's a good reason. I did not think of it that way. Thanks for explaining.
