Taking in tif's from vuescan, would like to save PNG's. These are medical slides that will end up being used for presentations.

TIFF files are 16-bit grayscale. Save As -> PNG seems
to leave me with 8-bit:

        PNG image data, 5053 x 3489, 8-bit grayscale, non-interlaced

The loss in resolution going from scans to VGA projector
will be bad enough for the image quality, I'd like to
have them at 16-bit gray if possible.

Checking the PNG standard, it seems to support 16b gray.

Q: is there any way to force Gimp-1.2.2 to save PNG's
  with 16-bit gray?
