The alternative would be to stay with target specific defines, but
agree on common names for "many" defines.

As far as I understand every platform with several drivers for
different color depth needs to implement remapping in all drivers but
the one(s) with least colors. This is the absolute minimum.

Up to now we tended to favor smaller/faster code over "clean" / common
defines. Just thinking about the videomode() discussion. So I'm just
asking myself why we should go here for more remapping than absolutely

Best, Oliver
