TBGR vs. TRGB. If there is a difference here, now we have decided
that the internal representation of bitmaps shall always be in

I expect this is not an endian issue but an OS issue.

Aside from my comment about ppc linux earlier, it would be interesting
to know how a littlendian (intel) mac performs.
