[Development] Texture image loading library

Hi Giuseppe,

It is hard to say for sure without seeing the actual code, but if there are no 3rd party dependencies involved and all we are talking about is a compact, private helper class in the style of Qt3D's current TextureLoadingHelper, then adding it next to QOpenGL* in QtGui is still the way to go. (long term these GL enablers should be moved out from QtGui but that's something for the far future and is not feasible to change now)

This would bring the benefit of potential reuse in the Quick (Image element) compressed texture support, once that materializes at some point in the future.

Are ETC1 and ETC2 included? They would be fairly important as well.

Best regards,

And eventually they could become public API.
