That sounds as if it's still impossible to preserve
semi-transparency while converting to indexed in the
GIMP. Therefore, my claim that I had been able to do
exactly that must be really weird. That's strange, I
very vividly remember doing exactly that until
yesterday. Memory can fail, maybe I'm wrong.

I don't remember exactly, but I thought I tried it and
it significantly reduced the file size, so therefore I
kept doing it.
