yes, in cpu endianness, little endian and big endian, its 1 byte so all at
the same time :)

i would say PAL8 + BGR8 + RGB8, in principle PAL8 alone should work too
but then some code somewhere has to turn that into BGR8/RGB8.
supporting all 3 directly is slightly nicer i think, it would allow the
user to choose between PAL8 (custom palette) once this is supported and
RGB8 (fixed palette) via -pix_fmt

Many things microsoft did are stupid, but not doing something just because
microsoft did it is even more stupid. If everything ms did were stupid they
would be bankrupt already.
