When the server runs in 24bpp mode, the pixels can now be sent
directly to the compositor in ARGB format (before that, they were
"translated" to RGBA). This means that the whole server+compositor
might run faster in 24bpp now.
It would be interesting to measure the performance of a 24bpp
configuration and compare it to a 16bpp configuration. x11perf might
be a good start. Any other idea?
