 Replying to [comment:3 cmbarton]:
 > The formats to which saving is permitted is determined by the canvas
 software (wxPython in this case).

 Or you can convert the PPM/PGM files (from g.pnmcomp) which are displayed
 in the canvas using an external package such as !ImageMagick or NetPBM. Or
 you can make PIL (Python Imaging Library) an optional dependency and use

 But it would be better to re-run the layer commands within an appropriate
 environment. This would allow you to use the cairo driver for !PostScript,
 PDF or SVG output (or the PS driver for !PostScript output), rather than
 being limited to bitmap formats.
