i dont mind if we move the byte based RGBA, ... into the enum and
move the RGB32 stuff to the #defines with the next major bump
(it would break ABI not API)
assuming someone posts a patch ...

iam not in favor of droping the native 32bit word formats nor do i agree
that this is just sws problem, it really is not.
a grep in mplayer confirms this also, the 32bit word formats are used
the byte based formats are not.

also what is your oppinion on the 15/16bit formats, they dont have any
sane byte based representation.
