here is my issue.  I use ATI's binary 8500 drivers, and it will only let me 
start X with 24bpp.  The only way to get 16-bit color is if I use the 
(slower) dri drivers, and in order to switch drivers I have to reboot 
(otherwise the monitor just blanks when I start x).  So you see, it is very 
big issue with me.
