Mainly because it started as an ImageMagick based bash script :p. But
ImageMagicks ability to load just about any format helps.
Also, from what I see in PIL docs, it doesn't seem to allow to set as
many format specific saving options (especially various rarely used
PNG options), which is extremely important for IMGCrush.
