There are older cards out there that really do use 24-bit pixels, in
order to save memory. I don't know if there are any newer cards that
still do this. Last time I paid attention to this kind of detail was in
the days when 1 MB of video memory was a lot, and people did all kinds
of trickery to conserve it.
I suppose you could have an SDL mode for "no really, I'm not kidding,
give me 24bpp surfaces".
