JPEG is for photographs only. Screenshots should be saved as PNG or even
GIF if that isn't available. JPEG is lossy and results in very ugly
screenshots with compression artifacts which are actually larger than
their PNG equivalent most of the time.

BMP as a way of sending screenshots is for people who don't know what
they're doing and probably shouldn't be using TSVN let alone developing
software! :) All software developers should know how to use e-mail and
take screenshots!
