I suggest to add PNG graphics format support to JDK.
AFAIK only JPEG and GIF are currently supported.
PNG supports many nice features like Alpha chanel, 
lossless true-color which will fit nicely to Java2D and
are unvailable in GIF and JPEG.

Utility class that writes any image to output strean as PGN would be also
very useful for image processing apps.
