No, all I changed was the order of RGB within a TrueColor visual as well
as switching from depth 15 to depth 16 (a better depth fix would be nice).

Remember that this change was only designed to make legacy toolkits
operate with ARGB visuals. I have hacked xterm to kinda work in this mode
with these DIX changes, but it still took a lot of fixes within the xterm
code to make it all work more-or-less correctly.
Applications using the "normal" visuals see no change in any case.
If we think a change like this would be useful, we can go back and figure
out a way to do this without modifying the visual structure. It's not
that hard -- it's almost always just the bits in depth with those consumed
by RGB taken out.
