sprite jpegs and truecolor images #69

Right now, SpriteMe ignores jpeg images and doesn't sprite them in order to
avoid an increase in file size from putting 255-or-less color images into a
truecolor format. While we want to avoid converting 255-or-less color
images into truecolor, we could combine all the truecolor images into their
own sprite. Need to investigate if this increases file size.

Remember the primary goal... reduce hits/requests to the web server! If I can 
combine 4 jpeg images into one that is 15K rather than 10K so what? I saved 3 
hits at the expense of an additional 5K of bandwidth. Still a big win, isn't it?

Let the user decide if the resultant sprite is too big. Don't refuse to 
generate it for him...

Did you ever come up with a solution to this? 

Perhaps display which images are truecolor images to be grouped with other 
truecolor images only, or let the user find out for himself if the filesize 
will be bigger / too big.
