Never mind my comments. I missed the fact that you're talking about
1-bit RGB data only (not 1-bit monochrome, which does make a lot of
sense). I think I added 1-bit RGB just because the Mustek scanner
could do it, but it always was a mystery to me why 1-bit RGB data
would be useful. I don't think even dithering helps there.
