I just read the png spec, and came up with this as a minimal, zlib based png encoding of a truecolour image with 1-4 channels
// by alex evans, 2011. released into the public domain.
// based on a first ever reading of the png spec, it occurs to me that a minimal png encoder should be quite simple.
// this is a first stab - may be buggy! the only external dependency is zlib and some basic typedefs (u32, u8)
//
// more context at http://altdevblogaday.org/2011/04/06/a-smaller-jpg-encoder/.
