Something like pngcrush

I am using Image::Magick to deliver PNGs to J2ME apps on the fly. The PNG
image is acaled to fit the size of the screen on the mobile. The trouble
is, some of the PNGs can be quite large - 100k is not untypical for some
of the more modern phones.

Is there a way to optimize the PNGs a bit more brutally than Image::Magick

As PNGCRUSH is FLOSS I suppose I could reuse its code, but was hoping
somebody had done the work for me :)
