Actually the gif is 1.5k. If you telnet in like that you are not sending
the "Accept:" header like your browser does so the server does not know
you are able to accept the image/png mime-type. Try it and send an
Accept header letting the server know you will accept the image/png
mime-type and it will give you a 1.1k .png.

Because you can embed comments in a .gif file you'll notice you do not
see that in the above .png output.
