Indeed, I'm proposing that we alter the X server behaviour here to fixup
the incoming data so we can assume simpler behaviour in the drivers.
Not sure about how to handle switching between xRGB and ARGB Pictures
though. I'm just going to suggest that when rendering to xRGB, the alpha
channel is undefined so I have the liberty to set it to 1.
