With graphicx it never succeeded for me to automatically convert a  
file from an unsupported graphics type to a supported one (I have  
convert and it is in search path). Tif2png can. Although:

	Package tiftopng Warning: Shell escape feature is not enabled.

On the one hand it's good that it does convert and I don't have to  
switch on -shell-escape generally which would make life a bit more  
dangerous. On the other hand then this warning is not necessary.  
Maybe a warn/nowarn option could be useful ...

Well, actually I would like to see the warning reflect the package's  
name. This would be more adequate.
