[kaffe] JPEG (and the others) loading on X

I was rather disturbed by the _really_ slow loading time of WidgetsDemo in the 
last CVS. After investigating (again ;-)) in the code, I've found the JPEG 
loader does not initialize the color mapping and thus the X toolkit use the 
really slow method of invoking XAllocColor. By the way, I don't know what is 
the "notorious DefaultsRGB workaround" (in clr.c) which is the cause of the 
delayed initializing of the color mapping. Final point, is there any reason 
to restrain the JPEG loading to 256 colours ?



P.S.: I have a patch for all these things I'll commit soon as Jim was 
sufficiently kind to offer me an account on pogo.
