Currently there is no general way to do this.
One could let the xpm writing calls (optionally) write some
ohter format, but you would also like to have the additional
file options in the programs.

But there are not that many files that write xpm's and even less
files that write xpm's that one might want to read with other software.
Which programs were you thinking of?
