Re: inferno and 1bit x displays

X does not guarantee the ability to store n-bit images on not-n-bit
displays, and does not provide the necessary conversion primitives.
The current code in Inferno to support X needs to be able to store
images on the server in the original number of bits-per-pixel.
These and related issues mean that on certain low-end X devices,
Inferno will not successfully create its display.
