eh ... you mean outlines, bitmaps in pdf are just png/jpg/tif compressed so
they should be of similar quality then their original

but, .. you're quite right [as always] about being better since inclusion
of a png converted to pdf is much faster, so what we do here is convert the
png's into pdf [using pdftex] and then including them as pdf.
