Pier implemented a SVGSerializer which took SVG and serialized it into a
JPEG.  I took this and added pluggable ImageEncoders, so that the sitemap
can define the file format, compression ratio etc.  At the moment there are
4 encoders:

* JPEG encoder using Sun's encoder
* JPEG encoder using Java Advanced Imaging (will change to the "Image I/O"
when it's released)
* PNG encoder using the LGPL'd PNG Encoder package
* PNG encoder using JAI.

I also updated the SVG library and patched it to handle transparent SVGs
correctly.  This patch has been submitted to CSIRO and should be in the next
