Yes, it does use the RGB colorspace, but we would like to support
other colorspaces too.
As for the fonts, yes, you can control this with rc.
As for the preview header, I suspect there arte 3rd part tools that
can do this (ImageMagick?). We should be able to do it ourself with
agg, but it would require someone to dig in and figure out the spec.
