Is it even possible to have an L/I texture bound as a framebuffer? I 
would expect an attempt to do that to fail the color-renderability check.

Do you have a real application that tries to do this? If not, I'd rather 
we reject such attempts and maybe add a piglit test to that effect if it 
doesn't exist -- and then get rid of this code in readpix.c entirely.

I think you're right though that texgetimage.c needs to support this.
