Automatic attachment conversion

It would be nice if Fogzbugz automatically converted large bitmap files to smaller formats. e.g. BMP to JPG, or screen dumps to 640x480 JPGs. You might do this with ImageMajick or some other such software. Currently our database gets 800kb BMPs attached, when they only need to be about 40kb JPGs. When you have 10,000+ bugs and 50-60% of them have screen dumps attached you can see how the database grows.

You could perhaps add an option to allow people to convert graphics when they are uploaded, before they are put in the database.
