When dealing with big animated GIFs (a few MB), Imagemagick could be very slow (and nobody uses GD because it does not work). There should be a file size limit that Imagemagick does nothing (just make a copy) if the source is beyond that limit.

Patch attached. It's an advanced feature, thus no UI. Also attached a less than 4 MB GIF that takes 40 seconds for a simple resize (Core i5, ImageMagick 6.7.7).
