I vaguely remember attempting this at one point, and gave up when I ran
into the issue that if you simply call pixman_image_get_solid(), then it
may attempt to initialize iterators, which will require access to the
image flags, which we are in the process of computing.

But something similar to this code:

        if (image->bits.format == PIXMAN_a8r8g8b8)
            result = image->bits.bits[0];
        else if (image->bits.format == PIXMAN_x8r8g8b8)
            result = image->bits.bits[0] | 0xff000000;
        else if (image->bits.format == PIXMAN_a8)
            result = (*(uint8_t *)image->bits.bits) << 24;
            goto otherwise;

from pixman_image_get_solid() can probably just be used since in
practice these formats are the only one used for 1x1 repeating
