I'm just in the process of trying to learn Python to be able to write 
some scripts.
Make sure you check the latest listing of Scripter commands at:


I see that there is a 'savePageAsEPS()' command, so theoretically you 
might be able to write the script to convert to EPS, then figure out a 
batch command for ImageMagick to convert to PNG.
Petr would of course be the definitive source for this.
