Right. If someone comes up with an actual use for RGB16_565 image
surfaces we can add this back at that point, (and with an actual
complete implementation that time).

But that's not the case we were targeting when we originally added the
format, (and it was naive of me to think the minimal work we did was
sufficient to address it).

Independently, I'm working on convincing the maemo folks to switch to
a native, gtk-coupled cairo. Stay tuned for more cairo-performance
related new here soon...
