#98 new enhancement

Save to Amiga RAW format

Description

Requesting the option to save a picture in Amiga RAW format, and with atleast some of the options from Piccon (very handy IFF to RAW converter, unfortunately only available on the Amiga). Most important option when saving would be choosing the bitplane depth (and having the colors saved as a colorlist in a separate .S file). You can read more about Piccon here:

I think it would be better to code a portable version of PicCon? in C (or python or whatever)

I sometimes wonder if a Lua system would be better for this kind of "export with many options". The hurdles are :
1) the Lua-GUI system is sometimes not flexible enough to do the best "save otions" UI - but this is improvable.
2) After a lua script is over, all in-memory Lua data is forgotten. Can't keep track of each image's preferred save options. Maybe it's possible to expand/reuse the "memory.lua" system, to save export options alongside the image.
