We can also simply remove the visual ABI changes -- they're only used to
kludge AllocColor (et al) to add alpha bits to server-side color
allocations. Presumably a "knowledgable" client will know what to do with
color allocations already. As a point of interest -- neither Gtk+ nor Qt
will benefit from the server-side kludge as they always perform color
allocation on the client side for TrueColor visuals, so the code as built
today doesn't actually help all that much.
