Well, I mainly wanted to point out that there's no real need for anyone
to look for an implementation of gdk_draw_bitmap as I've already done

Any chance to get the patch into 1.2.x?

The presence of the declaration of gdk_draw_bitmap in gdk.h indicates
IMO that the missing definition in gdkdraw.c is just an oversight in
1.2, and adding the function wouldn't introduce an incompatibility.

While we're on the topic of bitmap funcions: Is there any particular
reason why there's no equivalent to gdk_pixmap_create_from_xpm, e.g.
gdk_bitmap_create_from_xbm? It's not as if it were difficult to
implement. Most the functionality is already present in Xlib.
