opencpn is filling up my disks with massive uncompressed BMP files, which seem crazy when high-quality, lossless, FOSS, and hardware-accelerated (!) formats such as png and WebP (http://code.google.com/speed/webp/) exist.
This task depends upon

Sorry, do not understand which uncompressed BMPs you are referring to.
Do you mean the SENC files, i.e. *.S57? These are not BMPs.

yeah, I relized that after opening this bug report, i saw the small .BMP files next to the S57 files

although this belongs in a differn't bug, would it be possible to get the stitching of the .S57 files out of the hot loop, and instead do this in the background. I noticed while building these files my cpu usage never goes above ~60% either, and not that heavy of IO considering i have a SSD, so I think even the stitching is being bogged down from the UI updates in the GTK loop? anyways, its not a nice experience.

Also, it seems that I can't close this bug even though i opened it, which is unlike every bug reporting system i've ever used.
