Right, but HOW do I change it? Converting KAP to TIFF is done with 
gdalwarp. Is there a command-line flag I give gdalwarp to specify 
conversion to RGB? I'm handy with ImageMagick, but that doesn't read 
KAPs, so a solution within GDAL would be nice.

The output, I love AGG/PNG and RGBA; that's my formula for nice output.
