indexed palette bitmap export with dithering

Bug #170948 reported by Bug Importer on 2005-09-30
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone

Bug Description

Gimp has a few options to use dithering and other
methods for gradients. This results in smoother
gradients without banding.

Export to png could benefit from something similar.

Currently we only export 32 bit PNGs for which dithering
makes no sense. When we have a palette-based export, we'll
add dithering.
