pbm = Portable BitMap. it's generally the format of the scanner output
(when using sane, at least). so, no, it's not indexed.
to automatically combine several pbm's to one layered file, you'd probably
have to write a gimp script, and then still enter each file name to merge
in a dialog box. this seems like more trouble than it's worth.
