That would be OK i guess...i believe most people use 32bit images for images
with alpha channel...

The reason i would like to see DisplayFormat working fine with alpha
channeled images, is not speed (anyway,i am using 32bit images on 32bit
display :-) It's just that it's kind of awkward to keep a list of images
with alpha channels and of those with no alpha and loading them using
different ways (sometimes calling DisplayFormat and sometimes not).
