 More than 8 bit depth would be useful for X, there are a few drivers
 which run wsdisplay in 8 bit but switch to 16 or 32 bit for X ( by
 catching ioctl(WSDISPLAYIO_SMODE) ), for example igsfb, crmfb,
 cgfourteen, omapfb, voyagerfb etc. - mostly hardware that does or did
 not have native Xorg drivers.
 Sure, X on a dumb framebuffer isn't exactly fast but in my opinionat
 least, there are enough situations where slow X beats no X.
