How about adding support for TIFF images to Blender?  Am I wrong in 
thinking that TIFF can support color, alpha and depth channels (and 
others...) simultaneously?  AFAIK, TIFF supports 32- and 64-bit IEEE 
floating point pixel formats too!

It just seems a little odd to cobble an extra channel on to an existing 
image format in a non-standard way like this.
