PIL cannot do it by itself.
However, Tkitner is largely distributed with Python - and is instaled
by default in python for windows.
So it is reasonably safe to create a Tkinter instance to display the
image - even if your program uses another toolkit, the load should be
less then xv.
This was something I was wanting as well, so I crafted a small
function which loads the needed modules and displays a new image. It
can also work as a standallone lightweight "xv".
