[Image-SIG] PIL and 16 bit Images

Does PIL handle 16 bit images?

I have some 16 bit greyscale raw data images that I am trying to display
using PIL. The only way I can get it to look "right" is if I scale all
the data to 8 bit before creating the image using "fromstring". I would
like to be able to view it in 16 bit, not 8.

  Any suggestions as to a better way to do this, or even a solution?
