Sure, just wanted to point this out. Also optipng is not loss-less like 
gzip as you cannot reconstruct the original; esp. if you strip out meta 

Anyway, I am fine with adding such feature.

I wonder if we could implement such filters without modifyng the makepkg 
code. Might be worth if we like to add more in future.
