Main changes since last version:
- works with Tango (you need phobos' binding to zlib)
- refactored to better fit the D programming language
- changed and extended api (still simple and procedural)
- the decoder is compliant to the png spec and the encoder works 
properly (tested with the png suite)
- (better) support for transparency, background color, textual metadata
- various bugfixes
