Sounds reasonable to me since there's no way to call
png_set_user_transform_info with the user data (pointer) only, you
always have to pass the depth and channels arguments too. They should
just add the ARGB32 and RGB24 conversions as built-in transforms while
they are at it, hehe. ;-) Is there a public libpng git repository by
the way? The one on sourceforge shows only "synched from tarball"
