That's true.  OK, you've convinced me: We should go through the list of
file types the external converters offer and add the ones that make
sense (.webp, .bmp, .etc) to auto-mode-alist, and we should change
image-mode's messaging a bit.

We do, but perl-mode still works even if there's no perl installed.  :-)
