In principle, yes, but I think this is a bad idea.
It makes a lot of sense to me to have  *one* version of current/final
TL image on tug.org. Besides, if several people use 'makeimage',  we'll
end up with a confetti  of images in the Images area.
Then there is another problem: even though TUG server provides ample
disk space, the fact is that if all people suddenly decide to make their own
image it will probably crash the server...

There are licensing questions related to the use of .gif images.
May I ask why are we having .gif images on TeXLive CD at all?
Surely .png and .jpg could do the job?
