Hmm, well for the local server, it turns out this question is totally
academic. GTK / Cairo  crash & burn if you try to run them in a BGR
pixel format

Error: Cairo does not yet support the requested image format:
        Depth: 16
        Alpha mask: 0x00000000
        Red   mask: 0x0000001f
        Green mask: 0x000007e0
        Blue  mask: 0x0000f800
Please file an enhacement request (quoting the above) at:
gnome_segv: cairo-image-surface.c:155: _cairo_format_from_pixman_format: Assertion `NOT_REACHED' failed.

So, merely being able to handle BGR from the remote server is sufficient
for now.
