[ROOT] PNG output?

Hi again,

Is there any possibility that PNG bitmap output can be supplied in ROOT
in addition to GIF format? This would be very nice, since GIF has a
certain stigma due to the LZW compression patent (even thought I believe
it's now expired) and since PNG is simply a nicer, more modern format.
Apologies if it's already supported --- I couldn't find any mention of
it in the 4.00/03 release notes.

Also, is there a way (e.g. a .rootrc directive) to specify the preferred
output format from the canvas menu rather than have to drag the
drop-down list to the right position each time? This would also be nice,
but is rather less important!
