In that case, you probably want to just dump the stuff to an XImage
(GdkImage). The Xlib book (by Adrian Nye) is about the only place with the
necessary details.

IIRC gdk_draw_rgb_32_image() will draw data in the format
red-green-blue-padding, where each of rgbp is one byte. If you have this
format, then the function will work, but if you're already in GdkImage
format then probably it's faster to use that.
