Made two runs with x11perf, at 16 and 24 bpp.  Xserver from
server-1.4-branch git tree, on a B4 laptop.
x11perfcomp output attached, sorted by relative performance.

Some operations are faster at 24bpp, other ones better at 16bpp.
Looking at these data 16bpp seems a better choice: a greater number of
ops fare better than at 24bpp, but one has to consider what are the
operations Sugar does more.
I'm going to do some Cairo testing...
