Although a PNG image is editable and an open standard, it's
clear from Vincent's description that he does not consider
the PNG to be the _preferred_ form for modification of
the image. Therefore, he should include the PSD image (maybe
losslessly compressed) in the source package and provide
the PNG with the other binaries.
