Better way for watermark

In moment Piwigo uses png files for watermark but this creates many problems if pictures colour differs from light to dark. But there is much better way - creating watermark from pure text and with help Imagick. I personally have used this in my site many times.

Look at here and you understand why this is so much better http://valokuva.org/?p=59
(Choosing watermark color based on the background luminosity)

Which means more computation whereas you could have a png with a black text and white shadow

I think it's much simpler to have a PNG with transparent background, white text and black drop shadow (with no horizontal or vertical offset)

Re: Better way for watermark

No doubt png is more simple way if I consider computing resource but choosing watermark colour based on the background just looks so much better. Also it is much easier solution to end-user!
Maybe it is reasonable to let end-user choose btw png and simple text.
