Just for clarification: About SNG:
SNG (Scriptable Network Graphics) is a minilanguage designed

elaborate graphics images and ancillary chunk data can be readily
generated or modified using only text tools.
SNG is implemented by a compiler/decompiler called sng that losslessly
translates between SNG and PNG.

.diff files in Debian packages, so you have to develop some way for
converting it to and from text there. The traditional way is to use
uuencode/uudecode, but for PNG graphics it seems to be more logical to
use SNG. That icon was developed in order to add a PNG icon to the
