You are mistaken. In the Mac world there are quite a few people using
it (and the microtype package).

I already fixed the PNG bug for my release by installing libpng
1.2.8beta4 (seems to be a bugfix-only release with respect to 1.2.7,
quite saf) on my system, configuring my TL2004 run to compile against
the system png library.
As soon as pdfTeX is updated, I can do the same.
