I actually considered that but then decided to add a local variable to
have both options set in the same place, since I thought that would be
easier to read and also consistent with how preferred_bpp is handled.

Maybe I could go the other way around and rework patch 2/3 to also not
require a preferred_bpp local variable ? That patch won't be as small
as it's now though. --
