JPG vs. PNG, the Gamma war

I'm having trouble with the gammacorrection performed by 
afterstep/asetroot. If I set the SCREEN_GAMMA value to 2.2 all PNGs 
appear normal, but all the JPGs appear way to bright.  If I use 1.0 on 
the other hand, all the JPGs appear OK, but the PNGs get to dark.  XPMs 
look OK in all situations...

Is there any way to remedy this or do I just have to get consistent on 
whether I prefer to use PNG or JPG?
