   * STATUS_SIZE_AVAILABLE: We received enough image data
   * from the network or filesystem that we know the width
   * and height of the image, and have thus called SetSize()
   * on the container.
   *
   * STATUS_LOAD_PARTIAL: Used internally by imgRequest to
   * flag that a request is being cancelled as a result of
   * a failure of a proxy holder and not an internal failure.
   * At least I think that's what it does. Regardless, there's
   * no reason for this flag to be public, and it should either
   * go away or become a private state flag within imgRequest.
   * Don't rely on it.
   *
   * STATUS_LOAD_COMPLETE: The data has been fully loaded
   * to memory, but not necessarily fully decoded.
   *
   * STATUS_ERROR: An error occurred loading the image.
   *
   * STATUS_FRAME_COMPLETE: The first frame has been
   * completely decoded.
   *
   * STATUS_DECODE_COMPLETE: The whole image has been decoded.
