Actually, we do have some assertion statements about unsupported xlib
image formats in the code already. And people do hit them and report
bugs. I really just want to make all of these bugs go away.

Here are some of the current bug reports:

	Cairo doesn't support 565 xlib visual

	Cairo doesn't support 655 xlib format

	Cairo fails with 555 X server visual

	cairo doesn't support 8-bit truecolor visuals

	Cairo doesn't support 8-bit pseudocolor visuals
