OK, I'm playing around with pygame, trying to learn a few things about
python on the way.

pygame.image.load('pic.png')  works find on my desktop but on the FR (under
FSO) gives me:
pygame.error: File is not a Windows BMP file

Apparently compiled without support for png. Same for jpg.

Are you serious??  Python-pygame for the FR is being built with only
support for Windows BMP image files??
