RS Firewall should scan for hidden PHP in PNG

Hi RS Joomla!
We really like the RS Firewall extension.
Could you enhance RS Firewall to scan for hidden PHP (and javascript, html, and css) code in PNG image files? And in any files where it should not be. In any file that doesn't have the .php ending.
The reason is because many PHP trojans hide in PNG images, this is a serious information security risk.
