what are your suggestion for a better bitmap file format?

what we need?
- 256 color greyscaled image
- possibly uncompressed, or very easy & fast & small decompressor
- lossless!
- supported by common image manipulation programs (gimp,xv,photoshop,psp...)

not good:
- .raw - requires alchemy (non-free) for conversion
- .gif - lzw license problems
- .jpg - lossy... sux.
- .png - too big and compilacted decompressor
- .bmp - it's upside-down, and has many fileformat variations...
