That would be appreciated.

Actually I suspect you're referring to png files that are automatically
generated by running make in the source tree. Many of the black and
white "screenshots" are actually hand-written postscript files. These
postscript files are converted to pngs. This keeps the amount of color
down to a minimum and increases contrast for a printed book while
reducing the amount of ink used. You wouldn't believe how much
bleed-through you can get when printing a mostly black console
screenshot for instance.

It is better to hear the rebuke of the wise,
Than for a man to hear the song of fools.
Ecclesiastes 7:5
