I don't believe. It's a fact. And it is used in other places (QuickTime, 
both raw and RLE, and BMP) for 1 bpp data, so why shouldn't it for AVI 
as well? Please, just apply my latest patch that restores the pal8-only 
behaviour. This is a lot more logical than switching to monow for the 
case of black & white, which has to detected with extraneous code, and 
which just complicates things in my book. The customer is always right,
