I've still got an netbook computer (Toshiba AC100) which I use from
time to time while I'm travelling - and that one can only do 16-bit
color resolutions. It also has a rather poor CPU, so doing the
32-bit to 16-bit convertion additionally would slow down Hatari too much
on that device. So as long as I've got that netbook, I'm still willing
to maintain the 16-bit convertion routines.
