While googling for freely available icons for use with iPhone/iPad apps, I came across a few websites suggesting the use of utilities like ImageOptim and ImageAlpha for optimizing png's instead of using the png crush utility bundled with Xcode.

I'm filing this bug because Nic Wise has also asked about it on the mailing-list.

Just a Blue Sky feature request for now.

You can now disable pngcrush for MonoTouch builds which means users can now pre-crush their png files with any utility they want.

Would still be nice to be able to choose a custom tool.
