Do you want native drawing to pseudo color? Or do you want the ability
to paint in a local RGB buffer and then copy to pseudo color? The latter
seems like it will be a lot faster (Render support on pseudo color
hardware seems unlikely), and will certainly give better looking results
as we can even dither if desired.
