As far as I remember, the main reason the changes exist are to avoid
linking in piles of useless code from micmap.c which no server uses.

I think I may have also created a broader interface for hardware which
couldn't be described by the former image format stuff passed to the
colormap initialization routines.

Someone should figure out more precisely what the differences are and
what the 'best' course of action should be...
