[Rd] 12-bit functionality in tiff package

We have recently been using the tiff package for reading tiff images into the Bioconductor Package EBImage. This has been extremely helpful in conjunction with other steps to eliminate dependencies on ImageMagick.

However, it seems that 12-bit images are not supported. We were wondering if there are plans to extend the functionality of the readTIFF() function in the tiff package to accommodate 12-bit images?

Best wishes,
