The proper solution to this problem is _not_ to have an indicator of
the current image mode, but to get rid of the concept of image mode
altogether. Images shall always be composed in 32-bit floating point
RGBA and then have suitable filters and export mechanisms to deal with
grayscale and indexed images.
