I looked into it not too long ago, and essentially no programs available 
support doing anything more than cat'ing all the PNGs together, changing 
the header, and naming it .mng.  Since far more apps support PNG than 
MNG, it's almost certainly better to stick with PNG until long in the 
future, when better programs come out.  I look forward too it, but I 
don't think it'll happen for quite a long time.
